Marley, a Lovin Elementary School student, pours feed into a dispenser for chickens on Wednesday.

In the second full week of August in Georgia, there are few convincing reasons to go outside in the heat of the afternoon. For Lovin Elementary School students, though, there are about 15 minutes per day spent outside that provide something for them to look forward to.

In a collaboration between schools in the Archer cluster, Lovin Elementary schools students are responsible for caring for nine hens that are housed in a coop built by Archer High School engineering students.
