Mobile Dairy Classroom on the Central Coast

Mobile Dairy ClassroomTo coincide with the Be a Health Hero! campaign, the Mobile Dairy Classroom will be on the Central Coast this week. Students learn about the anatomy of a cow by interacting with a real live California cow! The Mobile Dairy lesson will cover what a dairy cow eats and drinks and how milk gets from the cow to the milk containers in their homes.

This assembly integrates Language Arts, Math and Science, while teaching about agriculture’s contribution to our food supply and providing your students with knowledge of healthy food and activity choices. The assembly for the lower elementary grades lasts 30 minutes and the upper elementary assembly lasts 45 minutes.

The cow will be here the whole week in SLO area schools. Here’s the run-down for you:
