Mr. Russell is a welding, ag/animal science teacher as well as the high school FFA advisor. Each of his classes do many different things. On A days, he has his animal and agriculture science classes. In these classes the students learn about the different functions of plants and animals. They do many different experiments as well. At the beginning of the year, his agricultural science classes did a soil experiment. The students were to collect a soil sample, and determine what type it was. They then had to write a soil report. It was a big project all together!
