Free Assembly K-6
Mobile Dairy Classroom

Our Mobile Dairy Classroom assembly teaches K-6 students about the anatomy of a cow, how milk goes from a cow to their refrigerator, the agriculture technology used and it gives them the chance to meet a cow up close! Language Arts, Math and Science are integrated into the lesson as well as healthy food and activity choices and agriculture’s contribution to our food supply. Review the full Scope and Sequence.

The assembly is taught in two segments:

  • 45 minutes for lower elementary grades, K-3, focusing on vocabulary, life cycles and anatomy concepts
  • 45 minutes for upper elementary grades, 4-6, explaining the ruminant digestive system, lactation cycle, agriculture technology and milk processing with proper vocabulary

Requirements

The assembly must be held in the morning and in an outdoor area that can accommodate a 35-foot truck and trailer combination. No electricity is needed. There is no fee for the Mobile Dairy Classroom assembly and it rotates throughout the state, visiting school districts every three to five years.
