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.
I have the privilege of working with a highly diverse group of thoughtful and creative students. Our school is in the heart of Pittsburgh, where one-third of our population are emergent multilingual learners who represent eighteen countries and speak fourteen, different languages.
I am inspired everyday by my students’ willingness to take risks in order to grow personally and as global citizens.
I am their teacher, but my students have taught me many lessons through their patience, persistence, and innovation.
This project will be a cross-curricular opportunity to combine literacy with science. We will read about and study the life cycle of a chicken. This will be a hands-on project, the students will keep a journal to keep track of all changes and growth they observe.
The students will observe the eggs-embryo development, then the hatching process.
After the chicks hatch, the students will learn about the needs of a chick and how to care for them.
This project will captivate my learners and truly bring life cycles to life. It will be especially impactful for my language learners who require realia and authentic experiences to grow their language skills. What a wonderful culminating activity to our life cycle unit!
