Ag Classes Learn Where Jell-O Comes From

by Chaleesa Warren with Rillene Nielsen

SFJH Eighth grade Animal Science students are learning about consumer products.  According to Ms. Warren, the origins of some products surprised some students. 

“Students made butter as they learned about the dairy industry and the products we enjoy every day,” reports Ms. Warren.  “Cooking T-bone and sirloin steak was a success after they had learned where those cuts actually come from on a beef animal.” 

“Last, and maybe the most fun, was learning about animal by products and where gelatin comes from!  Most students still made and ate Jell-O, for some it was too much to handle after learning about the process.” 

From garden or pasture, learning about how food get to our tables is very enlightening.
