Chicken Guide and Curriculum
If you already have everything you need to hatch and care for your chicks, we offer an extensive hatching guide and elementary school curriculum.
Our Chick Hatching Guide is a complete set of step-by-step instructions, with images, for hatching and brooding your chicks. (Note that the incubator set up instructions are for the Brinsea Mini Advance II incubators. If you have a different kind of incubator, please refer to the owners manual for set-up instructions.)
Our comprehensive 57-page Chick Hatching Curriculum has five sections:
- All About Chickens
- All About Eggs
- How Chicks Grow
- How Chicks Hatch
- Caring for Chicks
Numerous fun and engaging activities are included: hatching calendar, paper chain count-down, chicken and egg diagrams, and science experiments with eggs to name a few.
Our informational sections support English language arts and include:
- Talking: discussion questions
- Reading: fun facts, what's happening this week, how chicks use each part of the egg
- Writing: can/have/are and can/have/need pages
Also included are links to an outstanding curated list of educational videos suited for school use, an extensive chicken vocabulary list, and recommended fiction and nonfiction books. See sample pages here.
This bundle is delivered via email. You will receive a single, print-ready PDF file with both the Guide and Curriculum.
