Hatching eggs in the classroom worksheets

Have you ever tried hatching baby chickens? It is a really fun and educational activity to teach children about the life cycle of a chicken for kids. If you work it out with a local farmer, many will let you hatch eggs free as long as you are willing to bring back all the baby chicks (win-win!). This is a fun life cycle activity for kids from preschoolers, kindergartners, grade 1, grade 2, grade 3, grade 4, grade 5, and grade 6 students.

Whether you are a parent, teacher, or homeschooler hatching chickens is a fun adventure that kids will never forget. There is nothing like watching the chicks peck their way out of the shell and seeing what a day old chick looks like. It is truly the miracle of life in a way kids can watch and observe in a short 21 days! Make the most of this educational opportunity  with these hatching eggs in the classroom worksheets. Kids will write down observations, note where they are in the life cycle of a chicken, learn new vocabulary, and so much more.

Life cycle of a chicken for kids

Did you know many farmers love helping school (preschool and homeschool too!) groups by letting them hatch their chicken eggs for free in return for bringing all the baby chicks back to the farm whent hey are several weeks old?

I am always striving to make all our fun adventures as educational as possible. So I put together this Hatching Chicks book for my kids to learn and record their egg hatching and chick observations for science class.

  • Thanks so much for this booklet! It’s fantastic. We just hatched our first batch of eggs and it was so much more fun than I expected. My daughter completed the booklet as we progressed through the process. I especially love the image of chick development inside the egg. It allowed us to determine how far along an egg was when it quit developing. In the end I added more “chick hatching day” pages so she could describe (and calculate times) on more than one egg hatching. I also added graphs so she could graph the weight of the eggs through out incubation and the weight of the chicks for a week after hatching.

  • Thank you so much for making this great booklet! This is my first year of homeschooling and I’m always so thankful to find amazing free resources like this. Our eggs are on day 6 and we are looking forward to our hatching day! Thanks for sharing your time and talents with us all.
