Dairy Day at Maldonado Elementary
We had a mobile classroom visit from the SW Dairy Farmers' classroom. It was great. We got to see a real cow milking demonstration on our school grounds.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

W e were able to work together with a dairy farmer from New Mexico. We were recommended to do the program from a colleague at another school in our district.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

We plan on creating lessons to go along with the visit next year. We also read the Daisy the Dairy Cow story to students prior to the visit.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

We were a little nervous about the weather interfering but everything worked out. It was great to connect with other teachers in our school district. The mobile classroom came from out of town but a colleague was able to handle all the logistics.
