DARIEN. Conn. - The students at St. Luke's Parish School in Darien are getting an exciting hands-on learning experience about a favorite animal -- ducks -- just in time for spring.
Teacher Krista Longo and her class watched as six eggs hatched and six ducklings were born before their very eyes. The children get to feed the ducks, hold the ducks, and even watch them swim in their classroom in a makeshift bathtub.
Many parents are now requesting sleepovers with the adorable ducklings at their homes. Once the ducks are big enough, they will be released into a local pond.
