Birds & Eggs
Teaches about ALL creatures that lay eggs - reptiles, dinosaurs, amphibians, fish, insects etc.
Featured on Reading Rainbow - Great episode!
3 eggs hatching from nest template found here http://www.dltk-teach.com/alphabuddies/mnest.htm
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
