Celebrate Black Teachers and Students

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Project

My students are Egg-Cellent scholars. They love to do hands-on projects as well as engage in experiential learning. By far, this Chick It Out project will have these scholars seeing and doing "the why" of learning. These resilient scholars will delight in making connections to the real world by hatching and brooding their own chicks at school.

As caregivers, scientists, teachers and more, The Chick It Out project’s materials will make a huge difference as students embrace STEM and future careers.

Imagine, with their very own chick nursery and free range chicken coop, this project will allow my students to see the true meaning of farm to table as they align their leadership abilities to STEM lessons, citizen science, and sustainability. They will proudly network with their peers, parents, and the local universities as a guide to raise chickens.

Which came first: the chicken or the egg? Well, The Chick It Out project will provide students with a deeper understanding of agriculture, food and nutrition, and the world around them. The goal of this project is for students to learn and practice sustainability first-hand through poultry.
