Life Cycle Lessons
4-H Embryology in the Classroom
Children have a natural sense of curiosity about living things in the world around them. Building on this curiosity, students from both Pathfinder and Daisy Brook Elementary Schools participated in the Michigan 4-H Embryology program learning about embryonic development and life cycle during the 21-day incubation process of chicken eggs.
4-H volunteer, Kathy Alford worked with Kristen Christoffersen, 1rst grade teacher from Pathfinder Elementary, and Christina Mazeikis, Library Administrator from Daisy Brook Elementary, to bring the Michigan 4-H Embryology Program to the schools. As a result, nearly 700 students from both schools learned about the developmental stages of chickens, observed the eggs, and witnessed the hatching process. The 4-H Embryology program was made possible by a grant from the Michigan 4-H Foundation.
The 4-H Embryology program is an exciting and interactive program that allows youth the opportunity to observe eggs and hatch chicks in the classroom.
