The Story of an Egg . Chickens

This week we took a closer look at the marketing terminology related to poultry welfare and the ways in which terms like, “Cage-free” and “Free-range” can be used by factory farms to mislead consumers.

We also began researching chicken breeds in an effort to determine which would be most suitable for our school. The students reviewed various charts that indicated chicken breeds that would do well in cold climates, provide a healthy amount of eggs, had friendly dispositions and were hardy and forgiving enough towards their novice caretakers. After finding ones that matched the criteria, they started drafts of posters, including illustrations of their chickens and information about the breeds.
