Chick Quest LIVE Webcam - 3rd Grade Science
Chick Quest LIVE Webcam - 3rd Grade Science
11 May 2020
ChickQuest is an Ohio State University extension 4H enrichment program. Introduced in late 2008, it incorporates concepts of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). It challenges third-grade students to investigate the lifecycle of egg-laying animals while monitoring the 21-day incubation period of an embryonic chicken egg and observing the chicks that hatch. The program is different from a traditional embryology curriculum in that it incorporates a daily science lesson geared to Ohio's academic standards. We do hands-on science in the classroom all the time, but this takes kids through the scientific and engineering thinking process. It has a hands-on component, yes, but it also has life. When one student saw a chick break open from the shell, he said, "This is a miracle." Students gain an understanding that things are alive, and it awakens a bit of their humanity as they are studying science. We laid the eggs on May 1, 2020 the chickens will hatch around May 21, 2020.
