LINDEN — “Eggs and Chicks” is an investigation in the Full Option Science System manual for a science kit called “Animals Two By Two” that is used by Linden elementary schools. In this investigation, students observe chicks hatching from eggs, the structure of newborn chicks, and behavior of chicks as they grow. A farmer and his or her assistant arrive at the school with a hen and rooster, incubator, brooder, and food. The children observe the set up and monitor the incubator for several days until the eggs hatch. The chicks are placed in a brooding pen where students observe them.
