Jaden Millien pets Sweet Baby WatermelonCooke students receive a visit from some friendly chickens

May 28, 2013

Cooke kindergarten and first grade students were recently visited by some friendly chickens. Laura Palmer volunteered to visit kindergarten and first grade students with her chicken, Sweet Baby Watermelon. Fourth Grade Teacher Patricia Whipple brought her chicken, Creamsicle, to visit as well. 

The kindergarten students are learning in their ELA domains how farm animals contribute and are helpful to our community. The first grade students are learning about life cycles of animals, including the chicken. Mrs. Palmer and Mrs. Whipple tailored the lessons to reinforce their learning. The classes also have incubators in their rooms and are awaiting the arrival of chicks.
