My students need an incubator and the proper tools so that they can see a chick's development from embryo to fully developed chick.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My class will be studying the life cycles of different animals, one of which is chicks. The things I have to teach from are textbooks and sites on the smartboard. It would be an amazing thing for my student to be able to experience the actual hatching of chicks and enjoy a hands-on experience.
My class of 24 First Graders love to learn exciting new things.
They are extremely interested in Science. They especially love to learn by utilizing hands-on projects. Our public school is located in a low income area, where there are many different languages spoken. Therefore, it makes it difficult to communicate our needs. It is difficult to get the extra things that help enhance the learning of students.
These First Grade students have never seen a chick hatch from an egg. As we study the life cycles of animals, the incubator and supporting materials will help them to clearly understand what is actually going on. Instead of them just looking at pictures in a book, they will be able to watch it live.
It important to support this project because the incubator that I had last year ended up being broken.
Therefore, the eggs never developed properly and I had to discard them secretly so as not to upset my class. A new incubator with the supporting materials, will ensure that my class this year, will be able to enjoy watching the growth of chicks. This will be something that most, if not all, of them will never see again.
