Pre-K boys recently witnessed the beginnings of new life--eleven baby chicks that they hatched in their classroom. The hatching of the baby chicks is one example of the many dynamic hands-on learning experiences that the boys will engage in throughout the year. The hatching prepares the boys for their fall study of farm life, which culminates in Farm Day, as well as the interdisciplinary Seeds to Supper unit. Notes Pre-K teacher Cathy O'Neill: "The hatching of the eggs brings our class together on a mission of investigation. The intrigue of life in the country is celebrated on Farm Day and kicks off a year-long look at how food is planted, harvested and brought to our table."
