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!
