Pearl Valley Farms Virtual Field Trip Tomorrow

Tomorrow, April 10 at 1:00pm ET, Discovery Education will be in Illinois to livestream the virtual field trip to Pearl Valley Farms. Check out the map to see where Pearl Valley Farms is and see if you’ve ever traveled farther for a field trip!

PearlCityILMap

Our own Lance Rougeux will be visiting the farm and talking to the farmers about their hens and the production of eggs for your table. In preparation for the trip, put your answer to this question in our Comments section: Which came first — the chicken or the egg?

You can learn more about the Good Egg Project and register for the virtual field trip by going here.

If you’re not able to watch the virtual field trip in class, the archive will be available soon and I’ll post the link on this blog.

      Chickens lay their eggs a whatever time they feel like, but mostly in the morning between 4:00 and 12:00

    Personally, I think this is one of the greatest mysteries. I personally think that the chicken came first because they create the egg and the chick inside of their bodies. Even though, I feel as if you could argue saying that chickens hatch from eggs, but the egg all goes back to creation in the chicken.

    Neither came before the other, it’s an endless cycle. The chicken laid the egg, but that chicken had to hatch as well. And that chicken that had to hatch from an egg laid by yet another chicken. It’s an endless cycle

    OK, this has nothing to do with this blog, but I wanted to share this. Have any of you ever thought of what the universe is, and if it stops? I like to think of the universe as a circle, of sphere, where we are near the middle of it so not even the strongest telescopes can see past it. And at the end of the sphere there is a thick skin, that not even the strongest, sharpest knife can cut through. It isn’t a physical skin, but a skin of time. If you somehow CAN get past this skin, then you find yourself in a place with no time and all time at the same moment. Hot and cold at the same time. Everything and nothing at the same time.

        Ehehehe, try to wrap your head around this… What if the universe was only one universe in a bigger universe full of billions and billions of universes. And what if that bigger universe was only one universe in an even BIGGER universe full of the type of universes that our universe is in. Make sense? And I do agree with what Shophina said about God cutting through the skin of time, for the record.

          I see what you are getting at. It IS a strange thing to think about. I wonder if you travel far enough into the universe outside of all the plants, that you will find something bigger than the universe that we know today. I have not thought about that. That’s a cool thing to think about. I can also see why Shophina would not want to think about that. Good point, A.

    There is no possible answer. In harry potter something alike is mentioned. “Which came first? The phoenix, or the flames?”

    To answer your question A, The universe is endless. And our minds are NOT programmed to understand the concept of forever. For more just watch COSMOS on Fox 59. And the egg thing. It’s all evolution. Gods real way of creating.

    I think the chicken came first because all living things were made by one celled organisms. The chicken where probably giving birth before in changed to just laying an egg, or it was a combination of natural bird mating that made the chicken. So that’s my theory.

    P.S. If this is an actual theory. I did not know.
