We just finished studying the life cycle of a chick, so getting to see the baby chicks in real life was such a treat for my kids! I mean, look how adorable this little guy is!
The kids sat in a circle and gently placed their hands on the ground, anxiously waiting for a little chick to walk across them. This is the closest they got. Those chicks were smart, they huddled in the middle of the circle, out of reach from the children. ;)
This photo cracks me up, because this chick is seriously staring straight at the camera! Christy had marbles in the water to make sure the little guys didn't "fall in." I was stressed that something horrible would happen to the chicks under my watch, but everything turned out fine!
Here is my Chicken Life Cycle for Kindergarten if you looking for a resource to study this unit. :)
Thank you Christy for sharing your feathered friends with us!
