Cluck Cluck Science: Raising Chickens with your student to teach a wide range of skills such as science, math, research, journal keeping, etc. I also touch briefly on getting your kids involved in PenPals. Here are some of the links I referred to in this podcast:
http://www.mcmurrayhatchery.com/index.html The McMurray Hatchery website. They sell chicks and supplies.
http://www.enasco.com/ Nasco Supply Co. A great rescource for educational, Farm/Ag materials, as well as science supplies.
For books and the inexpensive Chicken Tractor I spoke about go to my Amazon Book Store page and look for Episode 5. There you will find some good books and a couple of options for keeping chickens. There are also some great incubator ideas. Don't forget to try Ebay and Craigslist in your area as well! http://astore.amazon.com/educ8rkids-20
http://www.studentsoftheworld.info/menu_penpals.php A good place to begin the search for a PenPal for your student.
