What's in an egg? A chicken...and all kinds of other critters! Today we read several books about eggs, including An Egg is Quiet by Dianna Hutts Aston. This book showed us all sorts of different types of eggs - bird, reptile, amphibian, insect, fish - and the beautiful shapes and colors they can be. We read several books about birds' eggs and also read Mr. Seahorse by Eric Carle, in which Mrs. Seahorse gives her eggs to her mate to carry until they hatch out. On the computer, we looked at photographs of all kinds of eggs! Who knew there were so many?
At craft time, we decorated a paper egg any way we wanted to, then cut it in half and hinged it with a brad. We taped a baby creature inside that showed when the egg was opened. Someone even made a baby dinosaur!
