Our incubator is now playing host to 12 lovely eggs. 11 brown and 1 white shelled eggs. Today was day 2 in their 21 day cycle:
We use HovaBator incubators and got ours from Frey Scientific. The eggs came from a friends’ farm. 🙂
Because we are learning all about the chicken life cycle, I used some of my K blogging friends chicken themed products.
This awesome emergent reader is from my blogging friend Maria. She creates the most amazing readers and sells them on her TPT site. 🙂 This reader is called, “Now the chick grows.” Here are my kiddos cutting the letters out and spelling “now” in their readers.
This pack is from my blogging friend Jennifer at Herding Katz in Kindergarten. Her pack is AMAZING! I’ve already used the Chicken Life Cycle reader (using it in my guided reading groups next week!!) and the Incubator Observation booklet. We also used the Incubator Calendar and we are recording information about the “going ons” inside the egg each day. There are so many things to use in this pack, I don’t know if I’ll be able to use it all! 🙂
I wish we could still hatch chicks in our school. I used to do it, but our new administration thought it would bring “germs” into our environment! 😦
