A Lesson About Milk

With two growing toddlers we go through a lot of milk at my house. Whole milk for my daughters and 1% or skim for me. That's my lead in to a little lesson that students can take with them to the grocery store. That lesson is the differences in the types of milk that they find in the dairy case. In the video below Brain Stuff explains the differences between skim, 1%, 2%, and whole milk. The process of creating skim milk is also included in the video.

Applications for Education
After watching the Brain Stuff video on the different types of milk, consider continuing your nutrition lessons with one of the resources from Nourish Interactive.

Nourish Interactive is a site for elementary school health and nutrition teachers. On the site you will find lesson plans, printable guides and forms, resources for parents, and games for students.
