Third-grade students from London Elementary visited the high school animal science class in the school's greenhouse, where they delved into the world of chickens. High school students, responsible for raising 49 chickens, answered the younger students' questions, providing valuable insights into chicken care. This hands-on learning experience not only prepared the 3rd graders for their upcoming egg incubation project in the spring but also fostered collaboration and mentorship between students of different ages.
The highlight of the trip was the opportunity for the 3rd graders to meet the 49 chickens in the greenhouse. This educational exchange left the elementary students excited and prepared for their future poultry projects. This unique inter-school interaction exemplified the power of learning and mentorship within a school community, leaving a lasting impact on all involved.
