Which came first... the chicken or the egg?
Kids in Grades 3-5 get to embark on this exciting 5-week learning adventure that teaches youth about the life cycle of a chicken by preparing an incubator habitat for chick eggs. As they observe the 21-day life cycle and prepare for hatching, participants will work as real-world scientists by observing, recording, analyzing, experimenting, problem solving and more!
They will also learn about Wisconsin agriculture and food sources and how food does not start from a box or a bag.
