The goal of this lesson plan is to teach a basic life cycle of the chicken alongside understanding how this correlates to a human life cycle as well. How any given animal has similar bone structures or analogs and the nourishment/care needed to raise a life. This will also teach the complexity of life and species survival (any given clutch of eggs will not produce a live embryo in every egg). This is a tactile, colorful, and intriguing lesson plan involving an incubator and the tools/will power to candle the eggs for active learning through 21 days.
