I then took out the flat part inside and one child guessed it was for eggs because of the shapes of the holes, saying they were "oval".
Mrs Hough had programmed the incubator to make sure everything was right and got the temperature to the correct number. The children felt the outside of the incubator and said that it felt "warm".
Next it was time to 'set the eggs'. There were 25 to choose from but only enough room for 7 in our incubator. Hard to select children to set the eggs but we have learnt ( and are still learning) that we can't always be chosen to do everything and that Mrs Hough and Mrs Harrison are fair so if they weren't chosen for one thing then they are chosen for the next. A good life skill to learn at an early age ( though I wish there was enough space and eggs for all children to have done this).
And here goes.....
And finally, egg 7
Lid on and now the incubation period begins. 21 days and counting..... Very egg-citing!!
