Who doesn’t love adorable ducks! I love bringing the excitement of these friendly fowls into the classroom. If you have a farm store in your community (you can even find them in larger cities), it is easy to find baby ducks waiting for you right in the store. If I have a family ready to adopt the ducklings, I will purchase them, but I find the farm stores are generally more than happy to let the ducks visit your classroom for an extended visit, to only return back to the store to find their permanent home.
If you are unable to secure live ducks, never fear. There are many ways to study ducks without the live examples living in a corner of your classroom. There are dozens of videos, books, and more to help you create a duck-like atmosphere.
