Community Helpers: Dairy Farm

Preschool Home-school Community Helpers: Dairy FarmerThis baby calf was only 3 days old!

For the next part of our farmer's study we decided to visit a different type of farm where they don'T grow vegetables, but take care of cows that give us milk.


I googled Local Dairy Farm and found a small one only 15 minutes from our house! Miss Becky not only allowed us to visit, but she gave us a tour around their dairy farm! Just goes to show you it never hurts to ask and many people are happy to help homeschoolers!

Miss Becky's farm
is a smaller farm but still uses all the technology the bigger dairy farms use. Batman had the most fun playing with the dozen kittens running all around the barn!

  • What is Dairy and what food is it in?- We followed this up with several fridge hunts and talks over meals about what we were eating.

  • Making C in salt on tray
  • Use Corn kernels (cow's food) to make letter C for Corn and cow
  • Dot Markers for letter C

  • Use latex gloves with holes to "milk" water, over our senory table
  • Sensory table fill with corn kernels and  Jumbo Farm Counters 

  • "Painting with milk"- white paper on black contruction paper
  • Color, cut, glue, and label dairy farm elements onto our Community Helpers Map
