RESOURCES ON HENS
Here we have a great selection of films for students of all ages and a Power Point for primary pupils. These will help students to gain an understanding of hens’ behaviour and the different ways that we farm chickens and hens.
Primary Age Resources
Let’s discuss: natural behaviours of hens and how we farm them Our Power Point Presentation is easy to use and considers the natural behaviours of hens, and the way that we farm them. It is aimed at children aged 7-11 (KS2) but can be adapted for younger ones. The Power Point is designed to be interactive. Questions keep coming up – stop to discuss these before you get the answers! You might think of other things you would also like to discuss.DOWNLOAD PRESENTATION
Older students – secondary and college
Two of our general films about the welfare of farm animals, including hens and chickens, and a practical activity to show the impact of selective breeding for fast growth in chickens on muscle degeneration.
