countdown to hatch

Grades K-5 (Kit)

Build suspense and get a sneak peek at embryo development inside a fertile egg with this colorful embryology kit. The kit contains 21 plastic eggs. Inside of each egg is a laminated picture and detailed developmental description of the chick growing inside. One egg should be opened on each day of the 21-day chick hatching cycle to give students an exciting look at the mysterious process that happens inside the egg.

This kit can be used on its own but also makes a great complement to a classroom hatching project.

This activity can be found in the lesson plan Hatching Science with Classroom Chicks. Additional lessons associated with this kit can be found on the National Agricultural Literacy Curriculum Matrix

    My students loved getting to open a plastic egg as we watched our chicks in the incubator. I created a wall display, so other classes could see what the chick looked like inside the egg each day.
