I am a 4th grade math and science teacher at Imagine Groveport Community School. Two 4th grade science classes hatched chicks last year. The kids absolutely loved it! We did many experiments and it was one of their favorite parts of 4th grade. In my class, 5 of the 12 chicks hatched. We even witnessed a chick that pipped through its shell during the night but did not make it out. While the students were greatly saddened by this, it showed what happens in real life. In the photo are a couple of the chicks, Fluffy and Miss Swisher, (yes they named a chick after me!), being held by students.
