Raising poultry raises health questions

The questions that poultrymen face as they raise chickens from incubation to adult life are not easy to answer. Both farmers and merchants can become concerned when health problems such as coccidiosis arise any time after the egg stage to later life. Experts recommend that young chicks should have plenty of sunshine and nutritious food for healthy growth. Banties and geese should not share the same barnyard or even sleep in the same room. They may be afraid of the dark.

Why study world history project - The world and the US today are facing many significant “Revolutions” and wars that have their root causes in the past. Lessons from the past can also help us understand the “Revolutions” and wars, prepare solutions, avoid pitfalls observed from similar “Revolutions” and wars addressed in the past and better prepare ourselves to be citizens of the world.

Project: As a group, prepare a brief Powerpoint presentation for ONE assigned current “Revolution” or war.

  • Using your textbook and internet research (find useful links on mrksmodernworld.pbworks.com, as well as other sources, complete a Revolution/War Snapshot chart.
  • As you research, record proper bibliographic entries.
  • Share your research with the other members of your groups so that each has a complete Revolution/War Snapshot.
  • Analyze the list of the Course Enduring Understandings (see list above) and determine which relate to this “Revolution” or war.
  • Find images, charts, graphs, etc that will help illustrate your presentation and will inform your audience.
  • Prepare your Powerpoint presentation. Include all of the above information.
