They realized that some eggs can be eaten and some eggs have chicks. They explored the possibilities that eggs can be all different sizes and cooked different ways.
They cracked eggs, decorated eggs, and discussed the different egg textures.
On one day, they even had two visitors. A parent brought in two one-day-old chicks for the students to observe and hold.
"The overwhelming response to their presence in our classroom was, 'Can we keep them,'" kindergarten teacher Alice Desormeaux said.
“They were fascinated with the idea that these chicks had only hatched from their eggs the day before. They also learned that chicks need water, food, and heat to survive.”
"The chicks were so cute," four-year-old Cameron O'Daiskey said. "It's so neat that they have a blue dot on their head to tell that they're boys."
Both chicks that visited had a blue mark dyed on the top of their head to indicate that they were male.
