They also asked if I was willing to come in to the classroom and talk about chickens. Of course I will never pass up a chance to talk about chickens :) we will see how it goes and see exactly what they want to learn. I'm hoping it works out so that this can be more than the kids getting to see eggs sit in the incubator and then hatch to see some cute chicks. I have no idea what the experience level is for the lead teacher in regards to chickens but I would assume closer to none than the other way.
My only tip: Remember the KISS Principle (Keep it Simple Students). Up until this project 20 of the 22 kids thought eggs came from the store.
