WINNEQUAH (WKOW) -- Some students at Winnequah Elementary School are learning about their favorite foods from Alice in Dairyland.
Every year Alice heads to classrooms across the state to teach kids the importance of Agriculture and the Dairy industry in Wisconsin. This year, Alice is helping the kids learn through an interactive program.
When it comes to cheese, most students are surprised to learn that Wisconsin has over 600 varieties, types and styles of cheese.
The fourth graders at Winnequah Elementary School are learning all the food that Wisconsin produces. Learning about where their food comes from is not only giving these kids a boost of knowledge, it's also giving them a sense of pride in their state.
Whether its technology or meeting Alice in person, these kids are definitely learning the importance of Wisconsin's dairy and agricultural traditions.
Although Katie Wirkus' reign as Alice in Dairyland will end soon, the new Alice will take over and continue to spread the economic impact of Wisconsin's dairy and agricultural heritage.
