Egg to Chick program

Published 6:35 pm Saturday, March 26, 2016

Bridge City Elementary has partnered with our local county 4-H extension agent, Christina Ritter, from the Texas A&M Agrilife Extension Services in Orange County for the Egg to Chick program.  The 4-H Program offers teacher training on how to incubate chicken eggs and our 2nd grade teacher Mrs. Cunningham went through the training.  After training has been provided, the 4-H program provides the school with 30 fertile eggs.  The eggs are placed in a general and easily accessible area so that each class in the school can participate.  Ritter provides educational material and support for the teachers as needed.  We plan on meeting and putting together appropriate materials for each grade level that builds from year to year to teach the students about the life cycle of a chicken.
