Living Eggs Project
In May we had the Living Eggs Project delivered to school. The eggs were delivered on Monday and the first chicks hatched on Wednesday. The children learnt about pipping and how chicks hatch out of the egg. The rest of the chicks hatched on Thursday and on Friday we were able to handle and care for the chicks. The children voted for names for the chicks and we set up a plan to look after them, changing their bedding, water and food everyday.
Throughout the two weeks we have done lots of high quality writing including diary entries, imaginative stories, information texts, instructions and post cards. They have also learnt about food chains, food webs, life cycles, variation, habitats and caring for the environment. The children thoroughly enjoyed the experience and got a lot of learning out of it. See below for some pictures of our wonderful chick work:
