     Fourth-graders in Kathy Milby’s class at Hodgenville Elementary School have been learning about the hatching of baby chicks.

Another chick began hatching while the students were in another class. Milby videotaped the hatching (shown on a Smartboard, so they could watch the process. They also are hatching quail eggs.
