Which Eggs Will Hatch the Fastest?

Here is a challenge for our kindergarteners.  Yesterday, I kept some tadpole eggs in a trap at the vernal pool.  You are all raising tadpole eggs in your classroom.  Which ones do you think will hatch first – the ones in the trap at the vernal pool or the ones in your classroom?  If each classroom can provide their claim and their reasoning to this question, we can all learn as scientists about this question.
