Hatching in the Classroom


Congratulations on your first step towards a new and exciting year of curriculum enrichment! The Hatching in the Classroom 4-H School Curriculum Enrichment program is intended as a cooperative effort between a school and the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service. It is designed to supplement and enrich classroom curriculum and compliment TEKS, not replace the required curriculum. The program helps youth develop needed life skills and address critical issues of life through hands-on applications. We are working hard to set up this webpage to serve you.
