ChickQuest, a Classroom Journey Through the Life Cycle of Chickens, is a 4-H School Enrichment Program that challenges students to use Science, Engineering, and Technology to investigate the life cycle of an embryonic chicken egg.
From monitoring living eggs to observing fluffy chicks, these lively activities pique curiosity, encourage collaboration and communication, and provide young scientists with unforgettable experiences.
Teachers attending this 1-day professional workshop will engage in hands-on learning activities designed by teachers for elementary scientists.
Each teacher will receive:
- teacher guide
- science log books—(set of 25 student log books)
- incubator and egg turner
- fertilized egg coupon
- kit that includes experiment supplies
- one day of professional development training for the teacher
- 0.7 CEUs
Teachers and administrators are saying:
“ChickQuest is one of the best teacher programs I’ve been involved in. The enthusiasm was contagious. I feel ready to help my students better understand life cycles of living things. We have already ordered our eggs.” From a teacher, Bexley City Schools.
“Three teachers from my school attended ChickQuest. They came back fired up about the information! They have been raving about the quality of the inservice, the speakers, the materials, etc. They have hatched chicks and ducks in the past but they have a renewed sense of energy now. In short: they loved it and can’t wait to come back. It is not always the case that we find such quality professional learning for teachers.” From a principal, Cincinnati Schools
“I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed ChickQuest. It was very well run, organized, and meaningful. The curriculum materials are very well done – a teacher’s dream. I can’t thank you enough for helping me bring this experience to my students.” From a teacher, Gahanna-Jefferson Schools.
The Ohio Soybean Council, Meyer Hatchery, and OSU Extension are providing this curriculum for elementary teachers in Ohio during the 2023-2024 school year.
