Help me give my students an incubator so we can hatch chicken eggs in an embryology project.
My second grade class, called "Ice Cream City", is a diverse group of students who are excited to learn in a safe and welcoming environment. I teach for the largest district in our state. We are not a Title I school, so funding is limited. We have about 775 students enrolled in our school.
The children in" Ice Cream City" are energetic learners, and I need your help to support their learning needs.
I have 25 vibrant students in my class who are eager to learn. I need a few supplies to improve our classroom environment and to better engage all of my students.
I have done a chicken embryology project with my students numerous times paying $50 each year to rent an incubator for the duration of our study. I would like to have my own incubator so I only have to pay $15 a year for the fertilized eggs.
Students remember hatching the eggs years after they've left my classroom and often write me or seek me out to reminisce about the experience.
This hands-on experience of nurturing the eggs and providing for the chicks makes a lasting impression on my students.
This embryology experience teaches the children the life cycle of a chicken and fosters dispositions such as patience and resilience. The children and I will read books about the chicken life cycle. We will candle the eggs and document our findings. We will keep a daily scientific journal, which improves their observation skills and questioning. Students will witness the determination of the chicks as they peck their way out of the eggs. Once the chicks hatch, students will help care for them by changing the bedding, feeding, watering and reading to them daily until a farmer comes to take them back home.
