  3. 3. Preparations <ul><li>To hatch chicks in a classroom the teacher must be very prepared. It takes about 21 days for the eggs to hatch, so the teacher should set the eggs three weeks to the day before you want them the hatch. The teacher also must order the fertilized eggs from a biological supply company and buy or rent the necessary materials for the project. </li></ul>quit
  4. 4. Materials <ul><li>Hard boiled eggs </li></ul><ul><li>Fertile eggs </li></ul><ul><li>Incubator </li></ul><ul><li>Egg turner </li></ul><ul><li>Lamp </li></ul><ul><li>100-watt bulb </li></ul><ul><li>Thermostat </li></ul><ul><li>Card board box </li></ul><ul><li>Food and water </li></ul><ul><li>Straw </li></ul><ul><li>Markers </li></ul>quit
  5. 5. Hardboiled Practice <ul><li>Boil enough regular eggs from a normal grocery store so each student has one. Before explaining the main project handout an egg for each student, and explain to them that they are in charge of their egg for the day and must be very careful with it. Handout markers and have the students create an egg with life like characteristics. ( eyes, mouth, ect.) </li></ul><ul><li>At the end of the day collect the eggs, check for damages, and explain what the class will be doing for the next few weeks. </li></ul>quit
  6. 6. Grouping and Naming <ul><li>Group students into pairs of two or three and allow each group to name their egg that will hatch. Mark each egg with a different color so students can tell which one is theirs. This will allow students to focus on a single egg and have more fun when they hatch. </li></ul><ul><li>Each group should also check to see if the egg is fertile by a technique called candling. </li></ul>quit
  7. 7. Predictions and Drawings <ul><li>A few days before the chicks are supposed to hatch have students write out what they think will happen during the hatching. </li></ul><ul><li>Also have students draw how they think the birth will look like, and for fun have them draw a picture of their chick. </li></ul><ul><li>Hang the drawings in the room. </li></ul>quit
  8. 8. Observations during the hatching <ul><li>Have each group pair up when the eggs begin to crack and while they watch the hatching have them answer the following questions. </li></ul><ul><li>What do you see ? </li></ul><ul><li>What do you hear ? </li></ul><ul><li>How long did it take ? </li></ul><ul><li>Also the teacher can capture the moment by video taping the moment. View video on chicks hatching </li></ul>quit
  9. 9. Create a Timeline <ul><li>Have students create a timeline starting from when the eggs were put in the incubator. To when they were hatched. </li></ul><ul><li>Make sure they include every important part to the process of hatching chicks. Such as the eggs turned for 18 days, then we let them sit for three days, we started to see the eggs crack and we could hear peeping, ect. </li></ul>quit
