From Cow to You: How Milk Gets from Farm to Table

Grades: Elementary & Middle (5-8)

Subject Area: Health, Environmental Science

Made Possible By: New England Dairy

Help your students make a personal connection to the concept of sustainability through their own eating habits and through the example of New England’s regional dairy farmers, for whom sustainable farming is a priority. Students watch a video to find out how New England dairy farmers care for their cows and their farm land, learn why it is important to have three servings of dairy every day, and create a public awareness campaign to reduce food waste at school.
