My Students

The fifth grade students of our Elementary School are an amazing bunch! In our social studies and science classes this year, fifty-eight academically, socially and ethnically diverse students are exploring project based learning. These fifth graders are very motivated to work together to create individualized projects such as movie trailers, graphic novels, music videos, 3D models and more. We are also excited to begin project based learning in biology with a project on the life cycle of quail. Our students are fantastically motivated and eager to jump into using new technologies. Our school is a very innovative and we want to provide excellent opportunities for our students.

My Project

Having a classroom incubator will be essential to our project based learning experience in biology this Spring. We plan on studying the life cycle of quail, and having an incubator available will actually allow my classes to observe and be a part of the life cycle of these birds.

I have chosen the Brinsea Products Advance Automatic 14 Egg Incubator because it has excellent visibility, fully digital controls, and programmable egg turning.

The best part of this project is that we will be able, as a class, to let these birds go out into the wild once they are old enough.
