4-H Curriculum Enrichment

Egg to Chick

Incubating and hatching chicken eggs is a hands on learning experience you can use with students from kindergarten to 12th grade. Classroom experiments with chicken embryos can help you teach complex systems such as nutrition and circulatory system, or more basic skills such as data measurement, collection, and analysis. These projects help students learn biological concepts and develop a deeper understanding of the life sciences. Examining embryos at different stages of growth, and observing a beating heart are just two of the projects you can use.

Egg to Chick Resource:


Fuel up to play 60 is a program founded by the National Dairy Council and NFL, in collaboration with USDA, that empowers students to take charge in making small, everyday changes at school. Students can win cool prizes, like an NFL player visit or Super Bowl tickets, for choosing good-for-you foods and getting active for at least 60 minutes every day. We want kids to make a difference not only in their lives, but also their community.
