My students need accessories to make our chick hatching unit a success!
Have you ever met fourth graders? Little bundles of energy! Nothing excites them more than getting to touch, see, and build their way to understanding.
As one of the top performing charter schools in the state, our school is working daily to help our students achieve their full potential.
The students in my year-round urban charter school are 95% low income. They attend school from 8 am to 5 pm daily. The staff at our charter school works diligently within our rigorous curriculum to help education come alive!
My students struggle with issues that often fall outside the scope of understanding. From poverty to food insecurity, homelessness to incarcerated parents, they face head-on many challenges that would make adults crumble. Even with these challenges, they come to school each day trying to put their best foot forward and grow as students, in academics, and as leaders.
These accessories will help to make our unit on hatching chicks a success! We already have an incubator and egg turner, but need a few more accessories to become the urban farmers of our dreams! These items (a heat lamp, bedding, chick food, feeders, and waterers) will allow my students to truly dive deep into and learn about the development of eggs, the life cycle of a chick, and the connection between farm and plate.
The excitement and energy in the classroom is palpable from the moment the chicks enter the room.
My students are entranced by every step of the process: candling the eggs, studying embryo development, and the long awaited hatch day! With these new accessories, we will be fully prepared to experience the wonder and joy of this unit.
