EMBRYOLOGY
AND BEYOND!

This project will help the students understand the embryonic stages of a development of a chicken, the parts and functions of the egg, the function and importance  of the incubator, the difference between oviparous and viviparous animals, and the responsibility necessary for caring for a living thing. All classes will keep a Hatching Journal to record visual observations of the growing embryo as well as information pertaining to the eggs (i.e. The Parts of An Egg, Uses for Eggs, Strength of an Egg, etc.) Each class will observe and record the growth of chicken embryos in Mrs. Trevino's class through the use of an incubator.
