Observe signs of a chemical reaction in the comfort of your own home with us! Stop by the York Street branch and pick up all you need for this interesting experiment and then follow along with us on GotoMeeting as we observe this fun experiment together and understand why it happens. Suitable for grades 2-5. Supplies limited. Registration preferred.
Join us as we check on the progress of our chicks. Our local 4-H agent will use a process called, “Candling” to check on the growth and development of the embryos inside the eggs.
Amy, our good friend from 4-H, will be at Anythink Brighton to candle eggs to see how many new chickens might be hatched at the library. She will use a light machine to look into the shells and observe the development of the embryo. Stay afterwards for a special chick storytime and chick crafts. Appropriate for ages 3 and up. Space is limited; registration required.
I had never seen a chick being born. Even when I was a young child living with my parents (and we had a chicken coop in the backyard), my only contact was when I was feeding them or gathering eggs. There was never a situation where I got to see a chick being born. I’m kind of sad about that now. To have the responsibility of making sure that the right conditions were met and that eggs were being properly taken care of to ensure birth would have been a wonderful life lesson for me.
