Embryology Unit

 Story image 1_0


It may not feel like spring, but the third grade classes sounded like it!  This year, the third grade embryology unit concluded with an outstanding hatch - 71 chicks!  Mr. Stehlik from the Saline County Extension Office lead students through the process of the development of a chicken embryo.  During two of the visits, students were able to see inside the eggs by candling. During another visit, students were impressed with Mr. Stehlik's egg collection!  They were able to see eggs from a variety of birds including finch, pheasant, goose, emu and even an ostrich. Students were able to hold and pet the chicks for a few days before they had to tell them goodbye.  Embryology is one of the favorite parts of being a third grader!
