In honor of the graduating class of 2019, we’d like to take a moment to highlight an item from our University of California Cooperative Extension, Fresno collection. This item is part of a 1950s era handout for 4-H advisors. It contains several recreational games for 4-H students to play, including this example of a homemade board and dice game called “School Days.” We hope our Bobcats finish their studies without encountering any of the challenges faced by the players of this 4-H game!
