    Hello,
    I'm trying to put together a few elementary school lessons (K-6) about chickens and eggs. I do not want to incubate, candle, or hatch eggs. I'm thinking more about basic chicken care, egg embryology, egg recipes, nutrition, and maybe something about factory farm egg production.

    Any teachers out there? Any ideas, links, leads? Anything would help.

    thanks!

    Maybe some of these links will help out:

    http://www.portal.msue.msu.edu/obje...e_id.-30/Poultry Record Book - Cloverbud.pdf/

    http://www.enchantedlearning.com/subjects/birds/info/chicken.shtml

    and you could go to youtube.com and find some great hatching videos and chicken run, coop, etc. videos. If you have computer access in the classroom you could teach this way vs. actually hatching a chicken yourself. I use it a lot for homeschooling my youngest and she really remembers stuff when she sees it.
