Resource Description

Utilize this inquiry box with our past virtual field trip video to Rickreall Dairy. In this box, you will find materials for The Mystery Ration lesson. Discover the nutrient requirements of dairy cows! Students will collaborate in teams to unlock feed examples through a series of escape boxes. As students work to unlock each escape box, they will be tasked with calculating rations using the Pearson Square method to provide a balanced meal for dairy cows to enjoy! Materials provided include 4 escape boxes, 6 feed samples, 6 scenario cards, 18 box cards, 8 3-digit locks and a treat for the final box. Materials are provided for 6 groups of students.

Materials will be provided for 30 students. Due to grant funding restrictions, this resource is only available to classrooms and not individual students.
