First class had so much fun participating in our chick project.
Shortly after the midterm break 25 eggs were put in an incubator for 21 days. On the 8th day we used a candling torch to look inside the eggs and see if their heartbeat had started.
On St Patrick’s day we watched one of the eggs hatch to be followed by 19 other happy healthy chicks.
We had so much fun as the chicks visited our class daily for the rest of the term. We observed the fluff changing to feathers and wished them well on their return to Edmondstown Farm back to Farmer Luky.
The whole experience helped us forget about home schooling and Zoom and gave us a taste of what being a farmer might be like.
