This year, the sixth grade students have had the opportunity to learn more about ducks and chickens in Ms. Lisa Moore’s and Ms. Jeanine Ging’s science classes. They adopted a few eggs of each from an unspecified farm and allowed the students to care for them before returning them so that they can be raised properly.

Two dozen eggs were adopted, but only six hatched. Five of the eggs were ducks and one was a chicken, this chicken was named January.  Unfortunately, the five ducks said their farewells to the sixth grade students and have returned their farm, but there is no doubt that they enjoyed their stay just as much as the students enjoyed their company. The chicken, January, however, is decidedly staying awhile longer with the sixth grade science teacher, Mrs. Moore–she adored January far too much to let him go just yet. It has also been announced that sixth grade can expect more chickens to arrive.

The students received many good experiences from the ducks, one of them being the morning run. The students ran the ducks through the hallways in the morning to exercise them. Because January is staying at the school, he still gets this luxury. The sixth graders also occasionally took the ducks down to the kindergarteners for a quick visit.

Moore and Ging would often bring the ducks into their science classes so that the students could play with them.

“During my experience with the ducks, I realized that my love for animals is greater than I knew,” stated Sarah Lisanti, a student in Ging’s seventh period science class. ”In fact, it even inspired me to get my own [ducks].”

Overall, hatching the ducks were a positive experience for the sixth grade students.
