RAHWAY — First grade students at Franklin Elementary School in Rahway were recently visited by ‘Cooper’ the hen. Students learned all about hens and how to care for a pet when they read the story, ‘Dan’s Pet’ by Alma Flor Ada. The story is about a baby chick that grows up to be a big hen that lays eggs and then has more baby chicks. After reading the story, first grade teacher Gail Andrews brought in her pet hen, ‘Cooper’ and visited all of the first grade classrooms in order to make a science connection with the story. Pictured here with Andrews and ‘Cooper’ are Kylie Callender, Caleb Santos and Kayla Fleurantin from Jennifer Ward’s first grade class. (Photo courtesy of Franklin School)
