4-H Spotlights - Rabbits-R-Us Participate in Community Activity with Learning Group for the Deaf

Erin Dresser Reporter, Rabbits-R-Us 4-H Club

Rabbits-R-Us 4-H club participated in a community activity with the Lincoln Learning Group for the Deaf. The 4-H club and learning group met jointly for lunch. Each 4-H club member stood before the group and introduced him/herself. Each member presented his/her bunnies and discussed points about each bunny. Each Learning Group for the Deaf member introduced him/herself and described his/her particular interests.

The 4-H club members experienced using an interpreter when communicating with a person who is hard of hearing or deaf. A demonstration in the proper use of an interpreter and communicating with a person who is hard of hearing or deaf was presented. The conversations and presentations were interpreted throughout the activity.

4-H members learned how to finger spell and practiced several phrases for communicating using American Sign Language. American Sign Language phrases were practiced which described the projects for the 4-H members.

The community activity developed an understanding about the respective clubs, about each other, and communicating with persons who are hard of hearing or deaf. Sara Morton, Rabbits-R-Us 4-H club leader, facilitated discussion and presentation for the 4-H club members. Nancy Brt and Sandra Dresser coordinated the activity. Nancy Brt served as the interpreter for the activity.
