Due to the nasty aroma of decaying chicken, I decided to re-season our chickens outdoors. Thank goodness the rain held off. The kids were pleasantly surprised that some of their previous predictions either came true or did not. What excited though was that the students were able to come up with reasonable explanations for their current observations and connections to their predictions. For example, one prediction was that the mummies would weigh less this week. After measuring them on the scales, none of the chickens lost weight. In fact, all but one gained at least 2 ounces! As expected, their predictions for next week included a weight gain. We'll see!! Now, to find a cool, dry place to store them over Thanksgiving break!!
