My students need a brooder lamp, and a life-cycle exploration set to go along with the 12 fertile duck eggs and the Octagon 20 Classroom Pack.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students have difficulty with long and short term memory. These hands-on materials will provide a multi-modality approach to teaching them the embryology of chickens and ducks.
My students are in a self contained K-3 Public Special Education Class on a General Education campus.
We have multiple disabilities in our classroom. With your help we will be able to reach out to them regardless of age or disability. This hands-on curriculum would be helpful to them to retain the information being taught.
Our special education students will be able to learn with a multi-modality approach the embryology of the chicken and the duck. They will be able to see and touch the different stages of development as well as learn the development at various stages. In addition to , this they will be able to see the entire incubation process and all the materials involved. With a correlation to the "mom" really being the incubator. The students will also be able to watch the eggs hatch and see them go from wet to fluffy. We have asked for the lights so that we can keep them in class for a short period of time so the students can experience what they eat and how fast they grow.
This project is important to our class as it bring hands-on learning and embryology or life cycle awareness to the students.
To see the excitement on these faces as they are able to see, touch, hear and smell something that most will never experience outside the classroom is priceless.
