Haywood Extension to offer embryology class training

By Haywood County Cooperative Extension | Apr 02, 2014

Haywood County Extension 4-H is offering 4-H School Enrichment Embryology curriculum to Kindergarten and second-grade classrooms in Haywood County. During the 21 days it takes to hatch baby chicks, students will learn about the life cycle, care for the chicks each day, and witness their arrival.

The 4-H Embryology Curriculum was designed by N.C. State University to match the Common Core standards and add a “learn by doing” experimental learning element to the classroom. The 4-H Embryology curriculum is free to public, private and home-school teachers and counts as continuing education units for Haywood County School teachers.

A teacher training session will be offered at 4 p.m. Tuesday, April 29, at the Haywood County Extension Center. Call 456-3575 to register. Spaces are limited.

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. 4-H is a community of young people across America who are developing leadership, citizenship, public speaking, decision-making, and life skills.
