Hatching Chicks in Pre-K
My students need a brooder to incubate our chicks that we hatch in our classroom as part of our growing and changing unit. We also can use an egg candler to watch as the eggs develop.
Our students are thrilled to be at school for the first time. They are curious and excited to learn about the world around them.
Our students are from rural South Carolina, in a critical needs geographic area.
Many of them have never been to school before, and they are extremely curious about the world around them. Six regular education classes and one special education class make up our school. All of our students were screened and deemed at-risk in order to qualify for our public 4K program.
Each spring we get chicken eggs to incubate and hatch in our classroom. This is such an exciting experience for our students to observe the eggs developing and to witness the chicks hatching! During the 21 day incubation period, we can use the egg candler to observe the changes happening inside of the eggs. Once the eggs hatch, we keep them in our classroom. This brooder will provide a safe way to keep the chicks warm so we can observe them grow feathers. The book will be a great opportunity to connect literacy and science as we learn about other egg-laying animals.
