Egg to Chick
Brenham ISD Outdoor Education
The Egg to Chick project was a huge success!
You worked diligently so that your students could personally connect with a lesson.
Regardess of your hatch rate, you created an academic experience for your students that they will rememember for the rest of their lives - well beyond our short time with them.
This project was successful because of you and your committment to your students.
Didn't have may eggs hatch?
That's ok - chicks are pretty fickle creatures under great circumstances.
In a classroom, even more so!
If you are interested in trying to figure out why, you may try candling the eggs with your students to see where development stopped.
- Set up your document camera
- Pull out a strong flashlight
- Turn off the lights
- Candle a few eggs to determine the egg's stage of development (this is a GREAT series of candling photos)
- Brainstorm possible reasons for the low hatch rate with your kiddos.
HINT: If they all stopped at around the same day, check your records for any temperature fluxuations.
