Chick Hatching Program
To teach our children about the science involved in poultry reproduction and life cycles, MindTech Montessori Schools incorporates a Chick-Hatching Program into the Annual Curriculum. During this program, the children have the opportunity to learn about the different stages of chick development and the different parts of an egg. This program also touches upon other topics such as embryonic development, different growth stages, the incubation and hatching process and life cycles.
Although the chicks are generally housed in a Elementary classroom, all children are involved and visit the chicks and share in the joyful experience of this event. Children have a chance to see the newborn chicks and witness firsthand the beauty of new life.
This program also teaches our children more about science and help them all foster greater love and respect for farm animals and nature through the caring and handling of hatchlings.
