SCMS Ag Studies Embryology
Sumter Middle Agriculture Class Studies Embryology
The poultry industry is Georgia’s number one of the top ten commodities. Student’s in Mr. Brock’s Ag class know the environment that it takes to hatch an egg. There must be heat, moisture, and the eggs must be turned frequently. We also examine the developing embryo from the time of fertilization until the chick breaks free from the shell. Did you know you can see the heartbeat of a baby chick at day four of incubation? We study embryology as a part of life sciences. Mr. Brock and student leaders have recently shared the importance of pollinators with Ms. Hala Gross’ fourth grade class at SCIS. We will soon share the hatching of hopefully one hundred baby quail with other middle and elementary school students.
