Farm Science

Hi –

In honor of this week’s farm theme, in Science we learned about cows and butter.

Believe it or not, today we milked a cow at school!

After a quick lesson about proper milking technique…

everyone got a chance to try:

Once we’d finished milking the cow, we poured some heavy cream into a container, added a marble, screwed on the lid and shook…

and shook…

and shook…

and shook…

and shook the container until we couldn’t hear the marble rolling around inside it anymore.

Then, we looked inside…

There’s butter in there!

We took the marble out of the container and discovered that fresh butter on fresh-baked bread (thank you Morah Elana!!)

tastes really good!

See you next week,

Morah Elaine
