Food Literacy: Connecting Agriculture and Healthy Choices

Mobile Dairy Classroom and our free nutrition lesson plans offer a powerful food literacy connection, helping students understand where their food comes from and how to make healthy choices.

About the Mobile Dairy Classroom Assembly

Bring agriculture to your school with the Mobile Dairy Classroom! Our assembly teaches how milk and dairy foods are produced and how they contribute to healthy eating. When you combine the Mobile Dairy Classroom with our Common Core aligned nutrition lesson plans, your students learn the full story of healthy foods – from the farm to the table – and how they can make healthy choices for themselves.

What Students Learn in the Mobile Dairy Classroom:

  • The anatomy of a dairy cow 
  • How milk goes from a cow to their school/home 
  • The agricultural technology used on dairy farms 
  • The many different foods made from milk

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.
