Say Cheese! School Program

Say Cheese! School Program

Little Miss Muffet has nothing on us! Your preschool and primary students will learn about, make, and taste cheese in this 90-minute program at the Museum.

Program Description:

Students dress up like cheese-makers and explore the steps to making cheese. They then use their senses to compare different store-bought cheeses before tasting the cheese they make. Finally, they make a craft, hear a cheesy story, and meet some of the animals that produce milk for making cheese.
