Visiting the Baby Chicks


Today the students were treated to special visit to a fifth grade classroom to see the baby chicks that have recently hatched. Every year, fifth grade has the opportunity to see this life cycle in action. They explained to the kindergarten students how they they incubated the eggs and the care it took to finally get to them to the 28th day when they started pecking at their shells. The chicks will stay for a while longer and then move on to live on a nearby farm. Thanks 5th grade for the wonderful welcome and experience for the kindergarteners. They really enjoyed learning about the chicks.
