Before we built our new chicken’s home, we dove into Argentina. We read All Around The World: Argentina and learned about Iguazu Falls and the Tango. Did you know that the president’s office resides in Casa Rosada (Pink House)? We also learned that the differences between the similar animals that live in Argentina: the llamas, the alpacas, and the guanacos (hwa-nah-cohs). The kids liked the idea of having to wear lab coats as part of their school uniforms like the kids do in Argentina.
After learning about Argentina, we started building our hen house! As the kids took turns screwing all the screws in, Mrs. Sam read a story from Argentina, The Gentle People. Everyone is so excited to complete the new home for our chickens so they can stay safe and warm as they grow up.
