4-H offers embryology school enrichment for teachers

Feb 01, 2013

The Haywood County 4-H will offer 4-H School Enrichment Embryology curriculum to teachers in Haywood County.  Two teacher training sessions will be offered — one before spring break Monday, Feb. 18, and one session after spring break Monday, April 15, both at the Haywood Extension Center.  The curriculum training opportunity is free to teachers from public, private, and home school groups.

The 4-H Embryology training counts as continuing education units and was designed by North Carolina State University.  The curriculum was developed to match the second grade Life Sciences standard course of study including learning about the life cycle of animals and students being able to identify ways in which animals closely resemble their parents in observed appearance and ways they are different.

The 4-H school enrichment programs are offered at no cost to teachers.  4-H school enrichment adds a “learn by doing” experimental learning element to classrooms in Haywood County.  To sign-up for teacher embryology training, call 456-3575.

The 4-H program is the youth education program of North Carolina Cooperative Extension, based at North Carolina State and North Carolina A&T State universities. More than 218,000 young people between the ages of 5 and 19 participate in North Carolina 4-H activities.  The Haywood County 4-H has numerous special interest programs, school enrichment programs, day camps, 4-H clubs, and opportunities for youth to learn while doing.  For information on the 4-H program in Haywood County, contact the Extension Center at 456-3575.
