Terri Fisher saves the best lessons for the end of the school year. At least she thinks so. And her kindergarten students clearly agree.
Last week, Fisher's classroom at Conowingo Elementary became home to three eggs and an incubator. This week, if the timing is right, one or all of those eggs will hatch.
"It's the most exciting part of the year. It's something that might hatch. Maybe they'll all hatch and hopefully, we can capture that moment," said Fisher.
Although he's just five years old, Gio Iadicicco knows his way around a potato.
In a recent 4-H sponsored contest, Iadicicco grew 2.4 pounds of potatoes, besting his older sister Kathryn's crop by mere ounces.
Their father Nick, was surprised at how well the children's bucket potatoes grew.
"I thought they were dead. This is the first time we did this but I do raised bed gardens," said Nick Iadicicco.
