Now you can do your own research on the source of your food. In a small group, prepare a presentation on how another dairy product was made. You have learned about the main ingredient, milk, already so you already have a head start.
- You may want to begin by naming as many dairy products as you can, and choose one from that list that you would like to research. For example, ice cream is one of America's favorite dairy products. Ask around- you would be surprised at how many foods have milk in them.
- After you have chosen a product, you will want to find out where and how it was processed (made). You may want to try calling or writing a letter to the company that made the product, asking if they could suggest someone for you to interview. More than likely, you will need to talk to several people because the product may have had more than one stop in between the farm and the store.
- Once you have collected your information, think about how you would like to present it to your class. You may consider using pictures, audio clips from interviews, fun facts and nutritional information, and brochures as well as other aides.
