Simply ExcellentReview by Ms. Banks
This incubator set is simply fantastic! It includes everything we need- even the lesson plan! I got this last spring for my 2nd graders, and they absolutely loved watching their eggs hatch. The candler works very well for letting the students get a peek inside the shell, and helped us to track development. I highly recommend this incubator package to other teachers who want to do teach this concept properly to their students. (Posted on 10/8/2013)
