Mrs. Doverspike’s and Carmon’s Kindergarten class at Stonehouse Elementary completed the 4-H Beginning of Life embryology project. 

 

Kindergarteners took care of fertile chicken eggs for 21 days in an incubator in the classroom.  The eggs had to stay at constant temperature and humidity and be turned a minimum of three times a day for the first 19 days.
