|Here is a link for an article about the event!|
Of course my favorite part of any event like this is the questions!
|One of the MANY classes I spoke with|
*When I asked what products at the grocery store were made from milk these are a few of the answers I got - "cake", "bacon" "eggs" (this was a common answer), "bread" so needless to say the Aggie in me had to give them a quick lesson on where those things actually come from
* how exactly cows turned water and feed into milk.. this one stumped me
*how come cows drink milk to make milk
*a few arguments on whether we can milk bulls
*a few class discussions on what that "thing sticking out of that cows butt is" - turns out they were talking about the udder... who knew?!
So after nearly 40 presentations I was dairy'ed out and ready for a nap, but all-in-all it was a success, hopefully those kids learned something!
|I used the video to help start discussion |
~Lastly, here is a video that I love to use when I present about modern dairy farms. The kids really enjoy this video, it does a great job keeping their attention and giving them the important general facts!
