This week we are going to focus on milk safety. We will be studying how our dairy products get from the farm to the processing plant and finally to our home in a safe manner. We’ll talk about pasteurization and fermentation and how many times the milk is tested for OUR safety. There will be vocabulary words this week and an experiment. This is how our week will look.
