Foghorn Leghorn Needs a Coop

My students need Country Style Chicken Coop for the chicken that are hatched in classroom.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day at 7:15, ready to get involved in the daily activities. I realize it is my responsibility to have my classroom well-prepared with activities to help them experience positive learning opportunities.

Adventure and discovery in a preschool class are like a safari to the children who are uncovering every possibility and discovering learning for the first time in their lives.

Children love to learn, and I love to see the development unfold before my eyes.

My Project

We have been hatching chicks right and left. It is time we start a small farm in our school yard. The coop would allow children to learn how chicken grow from chicks to hens and roosters. Children can also learn to care for chickens by feeding them and gathering eggs.

Children will benefit from hands on experiences such as raising chickens.

Small children can help collect eggs, scatter treats for the chickens, and learn how to refill feeders. Older kids can be responsible for making sure waterers are full, cleaning the coop, and helping to round up the flock at the end of the day.Keeping a small flock of chickens in the backyard is much more than a passing fad or trend and is slowly working itself into the fabric of life for class all over the country and from all walks of life. More people are happily learning that chicken keeping is an activity that the whole class can get involved in.
