But first, a closer look at cows!
I bet you think you know a lot about cows, right? Sure, they are a basic farm animal that gives us milk, but I bet there’s a few things you don’t know about cows. Check out some of the resources below. See if you can learn two new facts. Post your two facts on our “Cow Facts” Facebook post. Click here to go to our FB page.
Cows! Learning about cows for kids- Primary (K-2)
Cows are Awesome!– Intermediate (3-5)
Kiddos in grades 2-5, click here for a few more fun facts [that you probably don’t know] about cows!
It’s virtual field trip time!! Who’s ready to go to the farm?!?!?!
Both of these virtual field trips are appropriate for both age groups. The second link contains a little more information and extends the learning, but still neat things for younger kiddos to see.

And now for the chemistry experiment…
This is a super fun and beautiful chemistry experiment that uses milk. And it’s easy…. they’re just breaking down molecules 🙂
Materials: milk, Q tips, dish soap, bowl/deep plate, food coloring
A note to moms, dads & supervising adults: Some of these links go to YouTube. As long as they watch on the webpage, it won’t go to YouTube. The virtual field trips and facts go to different webpages outside of our blog. Please make sure to monitor your kids as they are watching the attached videos and using the attached links and resources.
If your kiddos liked this activity, we do similar experiments in some of our camps: Jr. Chemist (ages 4-5), Young Scientist (ages 6-8) and Chemistry Concoctions (ages 11-15). Click on the camp title to go to the description.
