What Comes First: The Chicken Or The Egg?

My students need to experience the life cycle of a bird visually. The egg incubator will create a memorable learning experience!

My Students

Our students attend a Title I school where 75% of the population receives free/reduced lunch. They are eager to learn despite the difficulties they face on a daily basis. They are hands on learners and thrive when provided new experiences. Many of them face academic challenges, but their hard work and determination is inspiring.

Our students are extremely curious.

They are always questioning the scientific phenomenons that occur in the world around them. They are self-motivated to find the answers to their questions despite the limited resources available to them!

My Project

Many of our students have little to no hands-on experience with animals/farming. This makes it difficult for them to understand the life cycles of other vertebrates. Providing a learning experience where they investigate the life cycle of a chicken on a daily basis will be something they never forget! It will also give our students an opportunity to practice responsibility as they care for the chicks.

We will need an incubator and fertilized eggs to begin our project.

We will also need a hygrometer to monitor the humidity of the incubator. We will also need containers and brooding lights to house the chicks once they hatch!
