Activity Description of "Balut Embryology"

Title Balut Embryology
Audience biology - all levels
Abstract In the Balut Embryology (Where in the World is Chicken Little) lab, we draw on an old traditional biology exercise but in a rather nontraditional way. In this lab the students will see how animals develop from just one cell. To watch the cells specialize and differentiate, we follow very careful procedures. Hopefully our end result will progress beyond the "balut ready" phase to a walking, chirping "Chicken Little".
