Today during Gardening Class, some of the students were able to go to the chicken coop. While we didn't actually attack anything, and the chickens only seemingly attacked as they were trying to jump past the students, we did help to gather the good organic material in the wood chips by sifting it out bringing it back to the garden. They were in four-person teams, two students per team were shoveling into the sifter and the other two would sift after a few scoops, and so on.
The students had a great time, I think just being in the chicken coop was enough to make it awesome. And I believe that Emmeline was the only one to carry a bucket by herself from the coop back up to the garden (she wouldn't let me help).
