Over the past few weeks one of our pre-k 3 classes had the joy of watching ducks hatch from eggs. In Mrs. Millete’s class every year they purchase duck eggs and watch the ducks grow and change through the duck’s lives. This year the class has had the opportunity in watching three different types of baby ducklings hatch and grow into full size ducks. Once the ducks are full grown they are sent to a local farm in Lockport.
Mrs. Milette has done this for the past 18 years because it is a great tool in teaching her students that even though all the ducks are not the same they can still get along and live their lives with each other. The students are also having the opportunity to have a firsthand experience in the life cycle of one of God’s creations.
