I'm giving a copy of A Kid's Guide To Keeping Chickens. It's not a read aloud, but it's filled with great information all about chickens. After all, many of us will soon have dozens of scrambled eggs in the classroom. Our kids will be dreaming of the little chicks breaking through their eggs and then the cuteness begins.
Growing up, I had chickens (okay, my parents did but I'd like to say I helped out) and they're a great way to learn how to take care of animals and become a responsible child. Plus, when the rooster tries to attack you, your cat-like reflexes grow and improve. And we did have that rooster. And he was mean. And he attacked everyone. And he went after a baby once. He made a great chicken and dumpling dinner.
As part of my on-going series of easy-to-implement project based learning activities, I'm sharing DESIGN A CHICKEN COOP. You might think it's easy, but designing coops is big business and there are so many different types. Getting kids to understand how to design and create is crucial to learning how to problem solve. Check it out. Then you can go get your own chickens too.
