Hatching A “Hands-On” Interest In Science

RAHWAY — The kindergarten students at Franklin School in Rahway recently participated in a chick hatching project. The classes received fertilized eggs from Quiver Farms in Pennsylvania. The students had to tend to the incubated eggs and then care for the chicks after they hatched. This very “hands-on” project is part of the Rahway school district science curriculum that combines science with literacy, math and social studies.
