Chickens

We have chickens in our class.We have Columbia Rock ,Barred Rock, Buff Orpington and Black Australorp. So far Three Chickens have hatched.  One is trying to hatch.  I have had three chickens so far.  We have seen the egg tooth in the eggs that have hatched. We have seen the chicks cuddle and walk.  They make peeping sounds.  They look like they are play fighting some times.

 

 

 

What We Have Been Up To

We have been working on Science Fair projects. Many students in our class have not done Science Fair projects before so we decided we would do some experiments and enter them into the Eagle View Science Fair as a class. Last week we did 5 different experiments, went through the scientific process and Monday we will get ready to present our projects as a group. Each child will be part of a small group who will present to the judges during the Fair. I have tried to introduce various ways to record and observe.

Students have chosen, or in some cases names have been drawn, to determine which experiment they will wish to present at the Fair. I welcome you to stop by and view the projects on Tuesday afternoon or ask your child to tell you about the experiments we have completed in class.
This is a video we all created using video as a observation tool. After we recorded our observations and learn about the science of why the leakproof baggie works.
