Walton County 4-H Embryology Project

Embryology is a 4-H School Enrichment Project supported by the University of Florida Cooperative Extension Service and your local County Extension Service.

4-H Embryology teaches students about science and respect for life. Students hatch chicks in the classroom and witness the exciting miracle of life. Students take the responsibilities of caring for the fertilized eggs and then the chicks after they have hatched.  Following each session, the hatched birds are given to local farmers or adopted out to students.

What is Embryology?

The Embryology Project focuses on the science “Embryology,” which is a branch of biology that deals with the development of an embryo from the fertilization of the ovum to the fetus stage. The versatility of the Embryology Project is that it can be tailored to youth of all ages from Elementary to High School. Although Elementary Schools are usually the primary participants, the only changes for High School would be the rigor of the lesson and the Standards it directly correlates to.
