Zelda's Chooks

Geraldine's Pre-primary and Year 1 Class

As part of our values project (who’s in our neighbourhood) the pre-primaries and year ones visited Zelda and Leon's house to look at her chooks. Some of the chooks have chicks. The chicks and their mum visited the school when they were newly hatched.

Zeldas’ chickens are important to Geraldine because they lay eggs and she can eat them. Woody 5 yrs

Zelda is important to me because she let me hold one of her chickens. Seth 5yrs




She is important to me because she breeds chickens and she lets us cuddle them and she sells eggs to the school so we can have yummy lunches. William 5 yrs




From a bird’s eye view the children made dioramas of Zelda’s backyard.

We visited Zelda again after a few weeks and the chicks had grown. The children held the chickens and collected eggs.

We made videos of our trips. What Zelda doesn't know about chooks is hardly worth knowing! Email us if you would like to see them.
