Visiting People on a Dairy Farm [and] Visiting People on a Dairy Farm: Teacher's Guide.
Department of Agriculture, Washington, DC. Office of Governmental and Public Affairs.
These booklets are designed to present an elementary-level unit that describes a visit to a dairy farm. In a narrative format with many black and white photographs, the student booklet explains some typical activities, such as milking and haying, on the Schwartzbeck dairy farm in Maryland. The booklet is divided into seven parts, each of which can be used as an independent lesson. During the "visit" to the dairy farm, topics such as how much money it costs to buy and run a dairy farm, how much milk cows produce, and what daily life is like for the Schwartzbecks are discussed in an easily understood format. For each of the lessons in the student booklet, the teacher's guide provides objectives, activities, and questions. (KC)
