Compare and Contrast Eaglets and Chicks

Teachers will hatch chickens in their classroom, giving students a chance to interact with the chicks and observe the differences between chicks and eaglets first hand. This lesson can be put together in a number of ways, depending on how deeply the instructor wants to dive. If hatching chicks isn’t possible in your classroom, consider watching a live chicken cam ( or ordering live chicks.
