Forest Brook Students Doing "EGG-CITING" Things


(Hauppauge, New York) – “EGG-CITING” things are happening at Forest Brook Elementary School. As part of a chick embryology unit, Caitlin Classey’s and Lynne Clarkin’s first grade “chick experts” worked hard to learn all about chicks and brought this learning experience to life by integrating technology into their classroom.

The students’ journey began with an incubator, 12 chicken eggs and a webcam. After the chicken eggs were incubated for 21 days, the students and families watched eight chicks hatch through a live video feed that was broadcasted over their class website. The students used various technology apps – including Tellagami, Chatterpix and Seesaw – to share their new knowledge with others throughout this “egg-citing” unit of study.

The class also created an interactive chick display outside their classroom for other Forest Brook students and classes to view and visit after they had completed their projects and technology extensions. The hallway display was interactive through the use of QR Codes, with more than 50 different QR Codes that can be scanned to bring the display to life.
