Pennies for Chicks
One Hen and Chicken Research
We are reading the book One Hen to learn how one small idea can change the world for many. In this true story, a young boy from Ghana buys one hen to help his mother and he ends up helping all of Western Africa.
If you were to buy a hen, which type would you buy? After reading One Hen, the third graders will research these fun, feathered critters and then fill out a questionnaire to see what type of hen is best for them.
Let's examine these primary sources.
Are these libraries? What do you think?
