Mrs. Carreno from Arlington TX is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Here Chicky, Chicky, Chicky

My students need this incubator & egg turner to interactively explore the amazing life cycle of a chicken!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Imagine how amazing it will be for these kids to experience the complete life cycle of a chicken! We dream BIG in our kindergarten class!

The students in Mrs. Carreno's class come from diverse backgrounds, but we ALL share a love for learning.

We are a fun kindergarten class in a large, public school district in the great state of Texas. For most of us, this is our first year in school.

My Project

I am requesting help to provide my classroom with an incubator and an egg turner. Each year we study animals, farms, and life cycles. This incubator and egg turner would provide my students the opportunity to experience the complete life cycle of a chicken, starting from the egg. We will learn all about eggs, baby chicks, adult chickens and hens. With these items, my students will be able to have a memorable and engaging learning experience!

This project is so important for my students.

Your donation will directly influence the lives of so many young children, for years to come. They will always remember their crazy kindergarten teacher who let them hatch baby chicks!
