In this unit, students learn about the essential nutrients for sustaining health and energy - including calcium and vitamin D, which are part of dairy's 13 essential nutrients - and reaching macro- and micro-nutrient goals. They’ll learn about the variety of recommended physical activity types (aerobic and anaerobic, muscle-strengthening, bone-strengthening, and flexibility) and how certain foods ( like yogurt and kefir, as well as kimchi and others) relate to gut health (good bacteria vs. bad).

Experiment with Yogurt in  Lesson Four – The Science of Yogurt! In this lesson students learn about the fermentation process that goes in to making yogurt. The lesson includes step-by-step instructions for two engaging classroom demonstrations and stand-alone activities to incorporate hands-on learning opportunities for students.

"We've recently created our own school garden. Our students are a major influence on the development and planning of it. This lesson will break it all down, giving them a bigger picture into farming practices.

"I have been able to pull out pieces of the lesson plans or activities and differentiate/customize them for my students and classes. The amount of information, guidance, tools, and printouts has been a lifesaver."
