Chicks Hatched by CiTi Students

MEXICO – Exceptional Education students at the Center for Instruction, Technology and Innovation recently completed a class project hatching baby chicks.

A CiTi student checks the temperature of the incubator to discover a baby chick born.

Emily DeGroff’s A+ program class investigated proper incubation techniques, including maintaining a consistent temperature of around 99 degrees.

The students checked daily for viability and studied numerous educational articles regarding the life cycle and process.

The hard work paid off April 11, when the first baby chicks broke through their shells.
