Via Karen Willis
u1021010's insight:

Many animals provide food for humans. Cows produce milk for their calves, which humans also drink and use to turn into other products; dairy products - cheese, yoghurt, butter etc.

 

This insightful video clip is aimed at Foundation to year two students and would be a valuable resource within the classroom as not only is the video engaging, but there are also questions provided which teachers can use to ask before, during, and after watching the clip.

 

Relevant Curriculum:

Explore how plants and animals are grown for food, clothing and shelter and how food is selected and prepared for healthy eating:

- Exploring which plants and animals can provide food or materials for clothing and shelter and what basic needs those plants and animals have.

Through this engaging clip offered by ABC Splash early years students will consider why cows make milk and how farmers milk their cows. Students can consider how milk comes from the cow to feed calves and how it is also farmed for society. This is age appropriate for Prep - Year One

This is a great resource Karen! Taking the kids back to basics is great. This will help them to understand more about where their food comes from and it's also a little life lesson too! This also makes great links to the children's real worlds which helps them to make connections and build on current knowledge to create new knowledge.
