Chick It Out

Students in our Academic Elementary and BEST Middle Schools participated in the Chick it Out program. They learned about how chickens develop within the eggs, how they hatch, and how to take care of the chickens once they are out of the eggs. Students loved watching the eggs each day and of course watching them hatch!

Hopefully one hatches today! We did an experiment to learn how strong eggs are! They made a nest out of play dough, set the eggs on the next, and stacked books on them!
