"Eggsactly" what is going inside there?
Have you ever wondered what a chick looks like inside an egg on each day of its 21 day incubation period? We used chickscope to check out real pictures inside fertilized chicken eggs and MRI (magnetic resonance images) from the outside. It's amazing!
The NJ Core Curriculum Science Standards are easily met by our animal and plant studies. We plant different species of vegetables in our school garden (the largest public school garden in the state of NJ) and observe them from seeds to flowering plants.
- 5.3.P.D.1 requires students to use observations of change in animal appearance over time in a life cycle.
- 5.3.2.D.1 requires students to compare offspring with their parents.
- 5.3.2.D.2 requires students to recognize that many species of the same animal exist.
Here is an awesome chick contraction game to play!
