Our Backyard Chickens study is fun, engaging, informative, and easy to follow! We have created seven lessons with only one required book, Chickenology: The Ultimate Encyclopedia. Our study is the perfect thematic unit for grades K-5! Our four children helped create this study, and we are excited to share it with your family!
