Many families are getting their own backyard chicken flock, even in urban areas. Your chickens, be it 2 or 200 lend themselves to a wonderful learning opportunity for your students or homesteading homeschooler. Or perhaps you hatch chickens out in your classroom every year. Either way, hands-on experiences help students to make more sense of their learning.
This collection of activities from Homeschooling and Homesteading gives step-by-step instructions of how to ‘meet’ a live chicken, dissect an egg as students would in a lab, and extend the learning experience by making meringue cookies. Vital information and defined vocabulary are included to help you be prepared for the lessons and questions that may surface.
