Friday was a busy day in Kindergarten. We had to prepare a habitat for the chicks that will be living in our classroom for a week. After all, we can't just let them run all over the place unsupervised! But just how do we do this? We are going to need some supplies. Lucky for us, the Science Center sent us some...
…but now what do we do with them? Mrs. Kurt helped us figure it out!
First, we had to find a large box. Then we lined the bottom of the box with lots of newspaper. Next we added a big lamp with a large clamp. We attached the lamp to the box with the clamp and checked to be sure the light bulb worked…it did. The lamp stays on while the chicks are in the box to keep them warm. They don't have a mother hen here to do that job.
We know that all living things need air, food and water to survive. We need to be sure the chicks will have all of these. We learned how to fill the water bottle and trough for the chicks.
We also had to get some food ready for them to eat!
We were all very curious to see what the habitat looked like, so we all had a look.
So excited for Monday…have a great weekend!
