My friend who is a HS biology teacher is thinking of incorporating chicken hatching (I think it might have something to do with me) as part of the vertebrate unit. What have people done as HS -appropriate level projects? She knows nothing about chickens, but is open to the idea. I am her crazy-chicken friend. From browsing/searching I have found an age range of school hatching from kindergarten to high schoolers. So far only genetics or individual science projects that were of the 'high school' curriculum level. *ETA: The chicks will be ensured they have homes lined up prior to incubation. For the most part, most of the areas where the students live in are allowed at least 6 pullets. Understandably, not all students would want to or can take chicks home so we plan on having one egg per student. I plan to take any of the 'unwanteds' and grow them out. Roos are banned from most areas and would likely end up as dinner.
