Mrs. Brown’s first grade class is working with Morgan Ball, the education outreach coordinator, to hatch chicks in the classroom. Ms. Ball came and set up an incubator with 7 eggs. The eggs take 21 days to hatch. When they hatch, the baby chicks will be placed into a cage with a heat lamp, both which were provided to the classroom. The chicks will eventually be taken to a Linn County farm where they will be raised. This hands-on learning opportunity was provided through the Iowa Ag Literacy Foundation and Linn County Education Outreach.
