Milk - From Farm to Fridge

This FREE (one copy per school) bilingual curriculum-connected teaching resource complements a visit to your classroom by a County or Ontario Dairy Educator. The resource builds on students' knowledge and explores the milk production system that takes milk and milk products from the farm to our fridge.

Using milk as a learning vehicle, students will gain further knowledge while developing skills that will help them become better learners. Activities presented in this resource reflect the latest Ontario Curriculum, with expectations to be addressed by the end of grade 8. Some activities may be more appropriate for primary students, whereas other activities may be better explored by junior or intermediate grades.

Topics include:

  • Milk and Machines
  • Dairy Goodness
  • Cow to Carton
  • Careers in the Dairy Industry
  • Animal Care and the Environment

The kit includes:

  • 5 study prints
  • 1 large poster
  • 2 teacher's guides
    (English and French)
