Field Trip to the Farm

Because of our involvement with Fuel Up to Play 60, students in grades first through second had the opportunity to go to a dairy farm in Washington PA. Students got to take a tour of the  dairy farm, meet some of the cows and calves, see how milk was produced, and have a tasty ice cream cone made at the farm!!

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Students are super excited to now know how milk is produced. They want to tell their friends about it and seem to be consuming more.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Teachers, Fuel up to Play 60/Mid Atlantic Dairy reps/students all worked together to make this field trip an awesome experience. All the students had questions for the dairy farmers. The students were so excited to see how this all works. In health we watched a lot of the videos on Discover Dairy and the students had already learned a lot about Dairy Farms. The representatives and teachers all worked together to make this amazing day for the kids happen. Thank you!!
