Third grade got to crack open some eggs in science class as part of their study of living things to learn about the different parts of an egg! Prior to the lab, students learned about handling raw eggs safely. Putting on their lab coats and plastic gloves, students opened their eggs to examine and identify the various parts. By examining the eggs, students compared the yolk (embryo), egg white, shell (protection of the embryo (yolk).
The lab served as an introduction to the scientific method and helped students learn how to ask questions and think outside the box! We are very grateful for Mrs. Christie Adams for her donations of 2 farm fresh chicken eggs and 2 farm raised duck eggs.
