This is a hands-on project because the fertilized eggs need our care and attention in order to hatch. The children learn about the life cycle of the chicken as we wait and keep the eggs warm. I will never forget our sense of wonder the first time a class of mine witnessed a chick break free from inside its egg shell! The chicks are helpless at first and often appear bedraggled. Once the chicks dry out they begin to inch their way around and everyone is cheering their efforts on. I believe Preschool age children especially relate to this aspect of process because of how often they find themselves struggling to accomplish new things. The chicks grow and change at great speed which is also perfect for Preschool children who are always ready for more, more, more excitement! The lessons about the cycle of life embedded in this project serve as a foundation for the profound ideas behind the cycle of life every living thing represents. After several weeks of keeping the chicks under a heat lamp, feeding and cleaning and getting to know the chicks can start to happen outside the cage. Chicks love to explore and are very happy to run all around the room. The project ends when we find a farmer who wants to adopt the chicks! For students who live in the city this is a concrete understanding about the world. We also visit a farm to support the student's learning.
