Egg Dissection

Unfortunately, our eggs did not hatch into chicks. However, we took this as a learning opportunity and we dissected each egg to see what happened inside.

We will try this once again in the spring, hoping for a better result the second time around!

Egg Update!

This week, we were once again able to have a closer look at our eggs, completely seeing the outline of the embryonic sacs that the chicks have been growing in. They should be hatching next week!

Oxygen for Life

As our chicks are evolving in their shells, we are also discussing what life essentials are, including breathing oxygen. We used a candle light experiment to demonstrate this, which the children were so immersed in. They requested that the experiment be shown many time over!

Egg Project Progress

We were able to have a look inside our hatching eggs this week, seeing in outermost veins of the embryonic sac. The children cannot wait for the eggs to hatch!
