A new chicken enters the barnyard excited and eager to make new friends. However, she soon discovers that she must endure the painful initiation of being pecked by the other chickens. She survives her ordeal and is accepted into the group. Noticing her bruised head, the farmer covers her sores with a band-aid and names her the Band-Aid Chicken.
When a new chicken enters the yard, the Band-Aid Chicken refuses to participate in the pecking initiation and convinces the other chickens to refuse, too. This story sends the message that it isn't necessary to do what others want just to be accepted into the group.
This set includes a CD with PDF files of discussion questions, 22 activities, colorful reproducible activity sheets, 3 coloring pages, 5 printable 11x17 posters, plus The Band-Aid Chicken Storybook. Level 1 Whiteboard compatible.
