More info: The Fay School in Texas has found a way to connect numerous academic curricula to raising chickens. By taking care of the chickens the students will use math skills to keep data on egg production. Collecting and analysing data lends itself to lessons in mean, median and mode, multiplying, predicting, measuring, and counting.

Students will also become more observant scientists as they monitor the health of the flock, write how-to books, and learn about safety and nutrition. They may want to start an egg selling business. Having chickens will challenge the students to go beyond the basics and apply what they are learning in the classroom to real-life situations.
