Becky Kobussen from the Embryology Agriculture Department of the South Florida Fair partnered with Kristine Frey’s third-, fourth- and fifth-grade science classes for the month of October to teach students the embryology process.
The students cared for the chicken eggs and watched the baby chicks hatch. Learning about the life cycle was exciting for them. The students asked many questions and have broadened their vocabulary in the world of science.
The students enjoyed the program, and they look forward to doing it again next year.
Next year, Wellington Elementary School will hatch the chicks in the science lab for all to see. The school thanks the South Florida Fair for this worthwhile educational experience.
