January 10th – Eggs Arrive
January 17th – Eggs Candled (check their progress)
January 31st – Hatchings!
This year your child will become “Mother Hens” and hatch chicken eggs during our Embryology Unit. This is a great experience for the kids, and usually what former students remember the most about 3rd grade. It takes three weeks for the embryos to grow from a mere germ spots into darling little chickadees! During this time the kids will tend to the eggs and make sure they are turned and rotated in the incubator. If all goes well they will get to enjoy a dozen or so adorably cute classmates for a few days at the end of the cycle!
