Students enrolled in Sarah Mannino’s first grade class at John Pearl Elementary School recently watched the development of baby chicks, right from the comfort of the classroom setting. In the middle of May, one dozen eggs were delivered to the classroom. The eggs were then carefully placed into an incubator, as students learned about the 21-day incubation period, along with the parts of the embryo and egg shell as well. In an exciting turn of events, six baby chicks hatched on the 21st day, as the students were amazed to watch the chicks grow and play.
