Thomas County- Thomas County sixth graders got a lesson about one of Georgia's most valuable resources in a special classroom. 

Inside a classroom sponsored by the Georgia Forestry Commission, students learned just how many valuable products come from Georgia's forests. The Georgia Forests Forever mobile classroom teaches students about how hardwoods and pines are managed.

"We know that when you get to them at a younger age, they'll bring that information home to their parents and their family members and get a log of people interested in forestry," said John Griffith, GA Forestry Commission. 

Students were then tested about what they learned today through interactive computer games.
