Baby Chick Update!

This is just a quick update on our chicken project. We ended up with 19 baby chicks! Wow! It's amazing how fast they grow! They just hatched on Tuesday and already they are growing wing feathers! They will be at school through the weekend; then on Monday, we will be taking them to a free range farm. This is such an amazing project to do with kids - it teaches them so much about life as well as gentleness and patience! They couldn't wait to hold them, so today I allowed each child to hold a chick if they wanted to and of course, they all did! It was such a sweet thing to watch how carefully each child held the chick and the smiles that came to their faces. This was such a fun way to finish our farm unit!


  1. We did not do chicks this year and I TOTALLY missed it. I just love the smiles on the kid's face when they get to hold them. Sooooo jealous!

  2. This is one of my favorite projects to do! There is SO MUCH learning involved in it! And you are right, the smiles and gentleness that come out in my kiddos are worth all the cage cleanings!! :) Hopefully you will get to try it again next year!

  3. I have never done it. I totally have to add this to my plans for next year!
