The Educational Benefits Of Hatching Ducks
Many teachers are bringing incubators into the classroom to give the children they teach an excellent hands-on educational opportunity. Taking care of an egg all the way through the hatching and early life of the duck is a wonderful way to learn important life skills and natural science. Of course, it is also very fun! Learning about the different changes a baby animal goes through and being able to see it happen is quite amazing.
Children learn about:
- Circulatory system
- Data measurement, collection, and analysis
- Biological Concepts
- Develop a deeper understanding of the life sciences
