Curriculum: 360° Virtual Farm Tours

Use the educator guide and activities from 3 reproducible handouts along with a colorful classroom wall poster to help your students make a personal connection to the farmers in your region responsible for the nutritious dairy products they consume every day. Activities focus on deeper-level thinking skills and stimulate discussion about dairy farming; dairy nutrition and sustainability and food waste.

Activities take students to two Vermont dairy farms through online 360º videos that let them control their mouse, so they can explore aspects of each farm as they learn how New England dairy farmers’ care for their cows helps protect our environment with sustainable farming practices and 21st-century technology.

This curriculum is geared towards grades 5-8.
