Help your students become water wise as they learn how local dairy farmers conserve water on their farms, and how they and their families can conserve water at home. Students explore the many ways dairy farmers protect the watershed, conduct a hands-on experiment to investigate the water cycle, and discover the importance of dairy nutrition.
Take a standards-supported virtual farm tour with your students to add to the learning experience. Students will get an overview of where their favorite dairy foods come from, while learning about how local farmers care for their animals and the land and use technology on the farm.
