Taking Care of the Chicks!
First grade Project Based Learning
This month first grade learned all about different life cycles. Not only did first graders create a journal writing about the chicks journey but they also were able to learn how to take care of them! The class received an incubator and learned how to turn the chicks. Each day the classes took turns turning the eggs. They were able to watch the chicks hatch and then learned how to feed and give them water. We learned that chicks are very social and love being held! Each class was also able to come down and hold the chicks! We can't wait to have the, back next year!
The farmer brought in the rooster for us to see.
He also brought in the chicken!
He showed us how calm the chicken was and we talked about how the rooster and chicken were similar and different.
