Students in Mrs. Thatcher's second grade class had the opportunity to incubate chicken and button quail eggs as they learned about the basic needs of animals and how external features affect an animals' ability to survive.  Students were very excited when the chicks hatched from the eggs after 21 days.  Students were able to care for the chicks for a few days in class, and then some students were even able to take them home.  It was a great learning experience for all.
