...To chickens, I'm so excited!
Today I went to Green Acres to pick up an egg hatching kit and incubator. In Grade 2 Science one of the units is Growth of Animals, so this is a great experience for the kids to have that follows the curriculum.
The incubator took quite a few hours to reach the proper temperature, so the fertilized eggs are sitting on my desk until tomorrow morning. I hope the caretaker doesn't put them in the fridge. In 21 days or so we should have chicks!Let me tell you, I am going to milk this for all it's worth:
"Silent work period - the chicks might not hatch if we're too loud."
"Sit down. You're giving me and the chicks a headache."
"Stop running around - how would you feel if you stepped on our class pet and killed it?"
Ohhhh, yes.. can't wait. This will be the best month of my teaching career :)
