What should you and your students expect to see?
- The Mobile Dairy Classroom Assembly brings agriculture right to your school teaching students new vocabulary, the anatomy of a cow, how milk goes from the cow to the table, and the importance of healthy eating and physical activity.
- There will be two 45-minute assemblies:
- 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
- The cow stays in her classroom trailer for the whole assembly.
- The assembly is an outdoor event and will take place in the morning, so make sure your students bring jackets if the weather is cool.
- Chairs are not recommended.
- This assembly is intended for whole school participation.
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.
Please note the Mobile Dairy Classroom assembly is only available in California.
