Mr. Larsen never planned to raise turkeys, but with his love for birds he wasn’t able to pass up the opportunity. Mr White, a former CHS teacher, asked for help to care for the turkeys. So, Larsen made a decision to watch the turkeys for a short while.
Mr.Larsen’s science classes were thrilled for the new additions. Students were able to watch the turkeys develop and play with them. Larsen feels the process has been impactful for his students. “The students like to see the little babies growing up, the only thing that was a bummer was that they hatched really fast. We got them, then two days later they hatched, so we didn’t know where they were at incubation wise,” Larsen said.
Even though the students didn’t get the full experience of watching the whole process, they still enjoyed the time they had and learning how turkeys grow up.
