Hatching Chicks

We would like to welcome some cool new “chicks” to Westside! Mrs. Russell’s 4th grade science classes have been incubating and monitoring the process of eggs hatching!! Students got help candle the eggs and watch the eggs veins develop into a full chick. The chicks hatched and now groups of students will monitor and record their chick’s growth! This little chick that is featured was determined to weigh 2 ounces and is 4 inches tall. We can’t wait to see how they thrive and grow!
