Teaching magazine farm animals

How are cows, pigs and hens?
About the natural behaviour of our farm animals, correct husbandry and animal friendly consumerism.

Pupils learn about characteristics and needs of our farm animals e.g. chickens need sand baths and discover their environment with their apex. Cows have best friends within their herds and pigs are so curious that they prefer to rummage all day long. An animal friendly husbandry system allows these animals to behave naturally.

The objecitves of this teaching magazine are:
Understanding the link between diet, responsible consumption and different types of farm animal husbandry. Becoming acquainted with solution oriented approaches like buying products from animal friendly husbandry and where to get these products...

The magazine contains: Q&A, discussion topics, drawings, games, writing assignments, quizzes, presentations

It is suitable for primary and secondary education and can be flexibly used in class without preparation time or previous knowledge.

The funny comic cow "Milli-Muh" guides the kids through the magazine.

Every pupil should get his/her own magazine to take it home and use it also out of school.
