Virtual Hatching in the Classroom


Our first virtual Hatching in the Classroom experience came to an end this past week with 12 chicks hatching! The program is open to anyone interested in participating. In addition to cute, newly hatched chicks, you will have access to the curriculum, and can access the resources at your own convenience. We hope you will consider including this as part of your remote learning experience. The link to sign up can be found on our Hatching in the Classroom website:

Rachel also teamed up with the Mammen Family Public Library to host an online Hatching in the Classroom program via Zoom. This is a three-week program that meets on Tuesdays at 3:30 pm. There are two sessions left, the 19th and the 26th, including conducting our second egg candling, learning about the different breeds we are incubating, and throwing a celebratory party for the newly hatched chicks! We had so much fun the first week with attendees having the opportunity to draw pictures of what they imagined the chicks will look like and ask questions about the incubation process. The link to sign up can be found on the Mammen Family Public Library website:
