A Picture of a nesting Chicken


After a visit to a farm and a good chat about life in the chicken coop, among other things, these 4th-grade kids made a joint exhibition with paintings of hens on nests made from raffia ribbon and chicken wire as an extra detail in front of the artwork. This project stimulated the children’s interest in nature in addition to working with new materials in a creative process.
