Which Came First? Chicken or Egg?
Today's post wasn't the biggest thing on my Principal plate today but it certainly was the most special. For several years our fifth graders have incubated and hatched chicken eggs in their Science classrooms. It is an incredible unit of study and the whole school eagerly awaits the chicks arrival each spring. For a couple years we have kept a rooster and hen from one of the broods in hopes than we could really complete the life cycle by hatching eggs laid by the chickens we had hatched. It finally happened! Our first real Chets Creek babies were born several weeks ago! Today though one of the teachers brought me a special surprise - a freshly laid egg!
