Christine Bitz (great aunt of one of a student in Mrs. Weiss' second grade class at Borland Manor Elementary and pictured above) presented to the second grade all about the chicks, life cycle, etc to go with their science curriculum. Then they took care of the eggs daily in Mrs. Weiss' room, watched carefully and around day 21/22 they started noticing some “pipping” (when the chick starts to break through).
Mrs. Weiss then set up a "live chick cam" through a Google meet so the kids could log on at home to watch the chicks hatch in the incubator and keep an eye on them overnight. The class also watched the recording the next day in school. One chick ended up hatching right after recess and the other second grades were able to watch live through Google classroom/meet as well.
