The students will study the growth & development of a variety of fertile bird eggs during the incubation process. They will learn what the mother hen does during this process and how we will simulate this in the classroom. Students will track daily development, temperature and humidity to ensure a successful hatch. During the project, students will learn about the function of the egg in development, what influences development and hatch rate, how genes are passed from the parents to the offspring, and how to care for the chick after hatching. Students will not only act as scientists collecting data and making observations but they will also learn about animal husbandry and agricultural careers. This real experience will be etched in their middle school memories for a life time of knowledge. An added benefit is the positive interaction with a living thing that will hopefully nurture compassion and awareness for life.
