Chick hatching!

Crossposted by Mr. Callahan from http://pineglentech.blogspot.com/

It's that time of year again at Pine Glen, where classes get equipped with incubators to hatch some chicken eggs.

The students have learned about the life cycle of the chickens and are eager to see their chicks hatch. I helped Mrs. Gonzalez's first grade class keep an eye on things by setting up a document camera that connects to their Interactive White Board, magnifying the view so the children can keep track of the eggs from anywhere in the room.

I used a demo P2V camera provided to me by IPEVO. It's much cheaper than some of the alternatives, and can also be used as a webcam.
