4-H School Enrichment Curriculum and programming aligns to North Carolina and National K-12 educational standards.
4-H Embryology (2nd Grade)
4-H Embryology is a school enrichment program designed for second-grade classroom students. 4-H provides training to teachers, equipment, curriculum, and fertile eggs to each participating 2nd classroom. Through hatching chick eggs students learn about the life cycle, science, nature, responsibility, and keeping records. Because the project is hands-on, the students’ interests remain peaked as they diligently turn their eggs, “candle” to see different developmental stages, and await the moment for the chicks to “pip.”

“As always, this becomes the most cherished, enriching experience the children remember year after year. Thank you!” – Teacher Evaluation
