Whether you're on your way to the library or stopping by City Hall, chances are you're driving by St. John Vianney School, located in the heart of Brookfield. This blog will provide insight into life and education at SJV, a 4K-8 educational anchor in Brookfield since 1957.
In order to help students learn about the life cycle, St. John Vianney K4 teacher, Kathy Andreucci houses chicken eggs in an incubator in the classroom and the students learn about the chicks' development within the egg, how they hatch, and how they continue to grow once they hatch.
Students compared an unfertilized egg to a fertilized one to find out what components of and egg lead to a live chick. As party of the project, the students learn the parts of a chick's anatomy as well as their complete life cycle. Mrs. Andreucci also uses this as an opportunity to teach the students about other farm animals.
