What educators are saying

We use this resource every year when we are waiting for our chicks to hatch. My favourite activity is the "Observation Journal."
We hatch chickens each Spring, and we have used this resource the last two years. We loved it, and found it incredibly helpful!



What's hatchin' in your classroom? This unit is perfect for teaching all about chickens & other oviparous animals. It's packed with oodles of activities that will have your students all cracked up over those egg-hatching critters!

Includes a writing craftivity based on the book "Chicks and Salsa" by Aaron Reynolds-{Chick craftivity can also be used alone or as a display for other writing activities.}

Hatching eggs in your classroom? It's the perfect companion for your classroom egg-hatching project.
