Chicken Class

Most suburban grade school kids’ knowledge of chickens comes from children’s books or the odd nursery rhyme. That’s changing fast in Kirkwood, MO, where a class project is underway to care for and observe two of the birds. It is a dream experience for their teacher, who tells HEC-TV she’s learning about these animals right along with her students.

There’s a lot more to education than blackboards and textbooks. Behind the Minds takes you behind the school doors to highlight educational initiatives within St. Louis city and county K-12 schools. Watch for teachers, staff, administrators, and students who will blow your mind with innovative ideas and programs.
