Spring Chicks!

I have been doing this with my students this week and it has been very successful.  We discuss first what we know about a baby chick using EET.  We review vocabulary related to the subject and I show pictures to reinforce the vocab (beak, feathers, wings, down feathers, hatch, yolk, peck, exhausted, fluffy, wet, skinny, etc).  I cracked an egg in front of them too.  We looked at it, touched it, described it- then washed our hands!  Then we watched a time elapsed video of an egg hatching from youtube video.  Afterwards, we made an egg craft for following directions and spatial concepts.  So much fun!
