The children were excited and curious on Monday by the arrival of our chicken eggs which we book for each year for the teaching and learning of life cycles. This is a fantastic way for the children to see first-hand the life cycle of the chicken with the incorporation of books and educational clips. The children were fulfilled with excitement when the hatching begun and have now been caring for the chicks including feeding and ensuring they have water and that they are handled gently.
We reached out to our parents for the weekend care of the chicks and had a fantastic response. We will be making out Chick diary and the children will have the opportunity to share their home experiences with drawing photos shared and a short paragraph of their stay.
