New Life Begins in Kindergarten Classroom

Students Observe Hatching of Baby Chicks

Excitement is always present in a kindergarten classroom, but on November 30 the kids in Mrs. Britton's class were more riled up than ever! Despite the coldness of winter, with the new month came new life in the form of eight baby chickens.

The class waited in anticipation for 21 days for the eggs to hatch, and when they finally broke through on Wednesday, the long wait became worth it.

Soon the chickens will be sent to the homes of the children who have taken care of them (with the permission of parents of course!)

The students started out with 12 eggs, and nine of those turned out to be fertilized. Eight of those nine were the ones that eventually hatched.

"Overall it has been great . . . we talked about the cycle in class, but for them to actually see it was just a great experience," Britton commented.
