Background

A great project for the springtime! Read a book or watch a video on how eggs hatch. If you have an incubator at your school, obtain a fertilized egg and watch a chick emerge right before your eyes. Have students apply what they've learned by drawing the egg-hatching process: the egg, the cracking egg, and the emerging chick. The culminating craft activity is an excellent wrap-up: students will hatch their own model chicks and make the connection between the visual arts and life science.
