See the Chick Hatching Report here:

Biennial Egg Incubation

Students have been asking about hatching eggs in the library of which we have begun.   Students remember when we brought 20 chicks into the world two years ago.   Two dozen fertilized eggs from Abma’s Farm are set in our library’s incubator.  The eggs have already been used for a lesson  for our preschool class.  The lesson, borrowed from this lesson,  describes the 7000  pores found in the egg shell letting in needed air, and keep harmful germs out.  Learning how the egg shell can be a means to help make the embryo stronger can help illustrate day to day selections and decisions that can make an individual stronger.
