University of Illinois Extension Kankakee Unit is offering our signature Incubation and Embryology Development program again this year. This course is designed to provide elementary and high school teachers with knowledge on the chicken's egg, its importance to man, and its role in reproduction of the species. Course content will be oriented to train teachers to conduct classroom incubation and embryonic development projects. Detailed information on the stages of embryonic development and the preservation of embryos will be included. Instructional methods will include lectures, discussions, demonstrations, and visual aids. Suggestions on how to use classroom incubation and embryonic development projects to enhance programs in science, language arts, mathematics, social studies, and art will be offered.
The training class is being held at 4:00 p.m. on March 7, 2019 at the Extension Office. Reservations for the class are required by March 1, 2019. Teachers who have previously attended the training within the last 3 years are not required to attend, but many find that a yearly refresher is helpful.
There is a $35.00 fee for the class. Fertile eggs only are available for teachers not requiring training this year for a fee of $10.00 per dozen. You may register for the class and fertile eggs on our website at: web.extension.illinois.edu/gkw Egg reservation is required by March 22, 2019. Egg pick-up will be April 5, 2019 from 7:00 to 9:00 a.m. at our office at 1650 Commerce Dr., Bourbonnais.
