Poultry Workshop: Day 4

It's Hatch Day!
The younger kids played a dice game.  They worked on simple addition skills, reading skills, and got to get up and MOVE!
We are a big fan of "getting our wiggles out".  During today's younger class, I taught them the Chicken Dance.  Then, we had a  freestyle-chicken-dance-off!
I taught the students about how I use fake eggs (or even golf-balls) to trick sneaky snakes.  We read the book, The Crows of Pearblossom, where the crows did just the same thing!

The older class read, "The Plot Chickens".  We used this book to talk about elements of story-writing.  The students were given a story map, and we brainstormed an idea for our next story.

The subject of our art project is Indian Runner Ducks, which the students have learned about in class!
