Caring for Baby Chicks

In accordance with their elementary science curriculum, the second-graders in Kelly Randazzo’s class at Duffield Elementary School have been observing and caring for a group of baby chicks to gain a deeper understanding about life cycles.

After visiting the Suffolk County Farm and Education Center in Yaphank, the class received several eggs to incubate in the classroom. They candled the eggs to see the chicks’ development, waited patiently for them to hatch and observed them after they had broken free from their shells.
