Birds & Eggs

Read:  Chickens Aren't the Only Ones by Ruth Heller

Teaches about ALL creatures that lay eggs - reptiles, dinosaurs, amphibians, fish, insects etc.

Featured on Reading Rainbow - Great episode!

Nest Craft with 2 eggs and a chick hatching - used paper plates

3 eggs hatching from nest template found here

Glued eggs and nest to white paper plates and Ben helped me cut them out with child safety scissors. Then I folded a large paper plate in half, glued the nest to each side, cutting 3 slits in the top so the eggs could be inserted. I left the bottom of the paper plate open (only folded and taped the sides shut a bit) so the eggs and chick could fall through, since my son likes to "pretend play" with the crafts he makes
