Share the entire story of dairy with your students– from the time it leaves the cow, to its life at one of our processors, all the way to the minute it lands in your cereal bowl! Dairy Farmers of Wisconsin has several resources to educate students about dairy, nutrition and farming. Their age-appropriate Book Lessons will help students discover how their food travels from farm to their table. Their “We Are America’s Dairyland” videos can be used to supplement these books or be shown separately before a field trip to a local farm. The “Virtual Dairy Farm Tour” is the perfect way take a field trip to a dairy farm from the comfort of your own classroom.
Age group? These activities are ideal for elementary students. They have additional resources for older students on the page.
