The incubator arrived today all loaded with eggs. There were some totally excited kids in my class.
We kicked off the morning before they arrived discussing what was going to happen (all pages are from my Chicken Diary)
We talked about the lifecycle of a chick and what is going to happen.
We made some predictions about when the chicks would hatch - the guesses were anywhere from today up til Saturday! We also graphed this prediction but no pics.
After we had a good look, I put the pictures on the board and we talked about what we were seeing so far. We did some more writing about what we were looking at . The lines at the bottom 'should' have more writing but we just ran out of time today - it was definitely a chick-a-thon.
I will be trying to keep on top of the chick-scapade with regular blog posts. There was a lot of bad chicken jokes by me in the classroom today so forgive me for bringing them here too.
My best effort -
"Bwak bwak bwak" (complete with flapping arms)
The kids thought I was hilarious!
