Eugene Field Elementary - 1st grade
We love Rose the calf! During our information writing unit, we used our new calf knowledge to teach others. The students also wanted to learn more about Rose's ear tag. I live on a goat farm, so I brought in my ear tag tool to show them how it works.

Across our curriculum, we find our class pet cow, Lilly, being referenced by the students all the time. The students are always very excited to receive the monthly update on Lilly.

I have used the Adopt a Cow program for several years in my first grade classroom. I love how we can use the lessons as an outreach to teach healthy eating habits, oral hygiene, agriculture, and so much more! The kids LOVED our dairy cooking unit!

Our class absolutely LOVES our dairy cow, Millie! Each student keeps track of her growth and their learning in their "Adopt-A-Cow Journals". We enjoy learning all about how dairy farmers take care of their cows and how we get milk to drink!
