Playing with the Baby Chicks

This spring our school had chicken eggs. I don't have any pictures of the process, but we got to watch them go from eggs to chicks. It was really cool for both the kids and the teachers. After the chicks hatched they were in an incubator in the hallway for a few weeks where we could watch them. Once they were big enough we set up a pen in the yard. The kids got to sit in the pen and watch and play with the chicks. It was a really great experience for them.

They loved getting to pet the chicks! My co-teacher in the 3's class, Ms. B, was making sure that chicks knew she meant business. :-)

We took the pictures of the kids with the chicks and hung them along the door frame to make sure the parents saw them. I added a sign with the date. The chicks have now gone to live on a farm. Hopefully they won't end up as my dinner someday.
