Product Description
Home on the free-range farm introduces the animal welfare aspect in food production. Students will make connections between their life and farms, be introduced to the varying living conditions that farm animals have, and to consider the needs that must be met within those living conditions. Students will be asked to take what they have learned and discuss where it fits into their individual value system. From there, they can choose to educate their communities or families on what they have learned so that more people can make educated decisions when it comes to our food.

The 30-minute Cluck! video is designed to be integrated with the lessons. Cluck! brings the farm to your classroom. The lessons can be completed after viewing each video chapter or can be done after viewing the complete video. The Cluck! videos can be found on youtube.

One of the world’s foremost authorities on poultry, Dr. Ian Duncan, takes you inside a modern egg laying facility in Richmond, B.C., to explain what life is like for egg-laying hens. Dr. Duncan discusses the anatomy of chickens, natural hen behaviours and how various management systems provide for chickens’ behavioural needs. Students are challenged to examine how farms are designed to meet the needs of chickens, control for issues such as food safety, environmental issues and transportation costs, and how their design impacts the cost of eggs.
