Hatching Chickens

Introduction

How much do you thnk you know about how chickens hatch? One way to find out is by watching hatching chickens very closely. But it is also important to know what special things eggs and baby chicks need in order to hatch and grow. This lesson will help you find out.


Exploration

Go to Baby Chicks Hatching to watch a video of an egg hatching. Watch the video a few times so that you’ll be able to talk about these questions:

  • Where is the hatching taking place?
  • What is the chick doing during the hatching process?
  • How does the chick look?


Now visit Mrs. Baston’s Kindergarten Web Page. Look at the pictures and read the story.

Think about answers to these questions:

  • How long does it take for a chick to grow inside an egg?
  • Where did the class keep the eggs before they were hatched? Why?
  • Where did the class put the chicks after they were hatched?
  • What is important to remember when handling a chick?
  • Where did the chicks go after Mrs. Baston’s class?
