Hatching Chicks In Room 6



Kindergarteners learn the joys of hatching chicks from egg to coop in this close-up look at how chickens grow.

A visit to Mrs. Best's classroom is always inspiring! Follow a classroom of real kindergartners as they participate in a popular activity: hatching chicks. Astonishing photographs show the life cycle of a chicken, from incubating eggs, watching them hatch, and raising the chicks until they are old enough to return to the chicken coop.

The Life Cycles in Room 6 series follows Mrs. Best’s real kindergarten class as they help things grow. This photo-illustrated series engages readers with hands-on science in the classroom and beyond.
