Anamosa elementary students uncover a story about milk waste

Students with milk cartons

Kathleen Morrison, a technology teacher, worked with grades 3-6 at St. Patrick's in Anamosa, and her students researched milk and milk waste.

"After our week long collection, the fifth graders figured the cost of wasted milk at lunch. They made a display and set it up in the lunch room to show the number of cartons of milk they collected, weight of the trash, the money spent on milk that was poured down the drain (in gallons and per cartons). I have pictures I displayed in the hall at school and also sent the information to the local paper, which was published. Even our head cook was amazed at the results."
