Daniel's class is doing some hands on learning! They got chicken eggs and get to watch them hatch. After they hatch some kids get to take a chicken home, as long as their parents ok it. Daniel is an animal lover and really wants a chicken....only problem is one turns out to be a rooster and roosters are against the city by-laws.
This would be a fun read-aloud when the kindergartens are hatching ducks in their room across the hall! We learn about life cycles in Gr 3, and so this would fit well with that as well.
