Bring the Dairy Farm into Your Classroom!
Discover Dairy is an interactive cross-curricular, multi-leveled lesson series that meets Pennsylvania state education standards and anchors for science, math and reading. The program also incorporates social studies concepts to show students where milk comes from and how dairy farms contribute to our world. In 2014, lessons were revised to incorporate Common CORE and STEM standards, with more writing assessment opportunities. View educational standard matrix.
Five lesson plans, with video motivators, reading guides, and assessment-based worksheets, are available for upper elementary level classrooms. Four two-part lessons, with video motivators, reading guides, and lab resources, are available for middle school. Education standards and anchors are listed with each individual lesson plan.
All lessons and associated materials are available to download at no cost. A new “Discover Dairy” interactive app for use in the classroom is also available on the ITunes store. Adopt A Cow, Dairy Pen Pal and other opportunities are also offered through the program.
