Just Imagine...

One creative student decided to create a new invention that The Milk Revolution would be very interested in owning.

My Invention
By Buttercup Pizzashorts                          

     All my friends were so sick of all the old inventions so I got all my stuff and made something awesome-The-milk-sugar-taker-outer.  It can extract the sugar from chocolate milk, strawberry milk and banana milk. It is used for the most sugary-est milks in the world.  It runs on solar power and human power.  People pump the machine, to make it work. It goes through tubes that extract the sugar.  In a big factory they have six of these machines. Two for each type of milk. The machine is made from steel and wood tubes with nuts and bolts.  It is in the shape of a rectangle. It takes ten milk cartons at a time. It takes 1 minute for it to extract the sugar out. The sugar gets thrown into a pool with a whole bunch of tubes in it that take it to be turned into dust.  he milk leftover tastes like the same milk but with real flavouring, like a "milkshake".  The milk will be the finest that you have ever had once it is done.  Anybody who likes flavoured milk that has no sugar will enjoy this milk.  Since it has zero % sugar it is recommended for anybody. The machine is not for sale so you'll have to buy my milk.

We are continuing to run pictures sent in to us.  You can send in your picture (or story or poem) to
This Grade 1 class had their picture taken at the Alberta Legislative Building

Another Milk Revolution Video Game

Pinky Chucklenose has done it again!  He created another fun game to play.  Click on it below.
Scratch Project
How to play: Use the arrow keys to move around the screen and collect the white milk.  At our school the white milk comes in little pink containers.  We don't get strawberry flavoured milk so you don't have to worry.  Stay away from the chocolate milk because if it catches you, your game is over.

Here is another entry from our May Photo Challenge.  This is a Grade 1 class visiting Edmonton's City Hall.

Where are you this summer?  Don't forget to spread the word and take a picture!  You can send it to
