What can we learn from a chick? Find out with ChickQuest, a Science Alive 4-H School Enrichment program that challenges youth to use science, technology, engineering, and math skills to investigate the life cycle of an embryonic chicken egg. From monitoring living eggs to observing fluffy chicks, these lively activities pique curiosity, encourage collaboration and communication, and provide young scientists with unforgettable experiences.

Visit Project Central to view sample pages from the teacher's guide ChickQuest: A Journey Through the Life Cycle of Chickens and from the ChickQuest Logbook.

Learning outcomes, including correlation to Next Generation Science Standards, are available in ChickQuest Lessons at a Glance.

Check out the video The Egg: Ohio's Perfect Food! Your students have a viewing guide on pages 51 and 52 in the ChickQuest Logbook. Here's an answer key too! (Answer key is coming soon.)
