From monitoring living eggs to observing fluffy chicks, these lively activities pique curiosity, encourage collaboration and communication, and provide young scientists with unforgettable experiences. Students will learn about animal agriculture and egg production. Ohio is the second-highest state in national egg production, and Ohio’s soybean crop provides food for chickens. The Ohio Soybean Council, OSU Extension and Meyer Hatchery provide this curriculum, one-day training and over $400 in supplies, including an incubator to each participating Ohio teacher.
This curriculum is connected to Next Generation Science Standards with a focus on 3rd and 4th grades. STEM Content and Skills include:
- keeping a science log book
- scientific measurement
- experiment design and data collection
- science literacy/reading skills
- life cycles
- egg-producing animals
