MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. — Orange County 4-H is looking for schools to participate in the 2020 Incubation and Embryology Program. We are looking for classrooms in grades one through three to spend twenty-five days learning all about the importance of incubation and embryology. Teachers and students will participate in this great hands-on science activity and physically watch the transformation of embryo to chick. Classrooms will be able to explore and learn all about the life cycle, a vital curriculum in their grade levels through the world of feathers!
Two FREE trainings will be offered at Cornell Cooperative Extension Orange County located at 18 Seward Avenue, Suite 300, Middletown, New York. Trainings will be offered on Wednesday, March 4th 2020 starting at 4:00 PM and Monday, March 9th starting at 6:30 PM.
In the training you will be given a sample of the activities and materials that 4-H can provide for your group of youth. We will then explore and discuss the world of incubation and embryology and how your club or class can be a part of the hatching madness. We will finish our time together exploring the package offered by Orange County 4-H to your classroom. Our program is called “Incubation with your Teachers.” So teachers be sure to bring your calendars and sign up for your FREE Training! Our projects and packages run from April- June in twenty-five day sessions, however please note that space is limited.
If your school district or classroom is interested in taking part of the hatching madness in 2020, please contact Margaret Smith at 845-344-1234 or firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, March 3rd 2020.
