chook money


because we have to buy chooks, salt, plastic bags, rubber gloves, baking soda, paper towels, etc, for ten groups, it will cost me heaps. your little class newsletter sugests 3-5 dollars per student. this depends on whether or not you are in a large, medium or small group.
to be honest, i haven't budgeted accurately and wonder if you could show some working here as to what it might cost per student just for the chickens alone. ten chooks, about $10 each maybe.... 33 students

and its going to take lots of salt, bags, etc on top of that.
btw - the bird pictured is not a chook - it's a wee duckling that was found near a drain at peachgrove - its brothers and sisters were stuck down the drain and no mummy was to be seen.... what will become of them!!!

Ouch!!!!
EXPENSIVE!!!!
$10 times 33 = $330 divided by 10 = 10.

What are doing with the poor baby duckling?
We could keep in our classroom...?????
SO SWEET!!! And release him when hes older...
probably a bit cruel...

good news! the SPCA has saved the ducklings and sent them to kind foster care. hooray!

mr woody said...

by the way kitty kat - re-read your maths workings. you are way off.

Kitty Kat said...

opps....sorry I made a mistake!!!

10 x 10 = 100 divided by 33 = $3.03ish...opps...

YAY for the SPCA!!!

how small is small groups can you do it on just a pair if your willing to pay more money

small groups would be funnier cause you get to do more

yes i think if we choose our own groups, than we are choosing how much we are willing to pay.

Kitty Kat said...

yes small groups wold be better maybe 2-4 or something.
