Our favorite dairy products undergo an extensive process to reach our tables. Each stage of development is complex, requiring a series of lengthy procedures designed to make milk safe for human consumption. Using pictures, puppets, and a silly song, your budding farmer learned about the many stages of milk production. Following this circle time introduction, each student was given tractors, cows, cotton (to simulate milk), farmers, and their imaginations, to apply their understanding of this new information! This activity was significant to our curriculum, because it supplied us with a greater understanding of the origins of our food, those who serve our communities, and the connection between them!
