It also gives an insight into particular biological topics such as blood circulation, respiration and bones.
Further useful resources have been included at the end of the manual to consolidate the embryology and hatching project, but also to enhance programs in nutrition and mathematics, for instance. Particularly suited to elementary and middle school science projects, the lesson plans are flexible and can easily be tailored to younger students needs.
