We started by watching The Magic School Bus: Cracks a Yolk episode. I bought the entire set at Costco last year and it has been worth it :) If you have access to United Streaming, they have many of the episodes on there too. I like having the DVDs though (especially for subs). We also watched a short video from my favorite museum (Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry) on chicks hatching. I always loved visiting that exhibit when I was a child!
I feel like I don't do enough art, so this was the perfect spring bulletin board:) Students were allowed to choose from several eggs (there were more but I forgot to take pictures:) and add torn paper with glue to their egg. This was perfect for the random pieces of construction paper that I have in my cabinet. I do have a student who is a Jehovah's Witness, so I had him make a tree.
We also did some word study activities. Students had a basket of eggs. Inside each egg was one word for them to figure out. I colored the paper with crayons to help keep the eggs in order.
I don't have a picture of it, but we are currently doing the "naked egg experiment." You can see how to do it here. My students are really enjoying this so far! I would recommend it!
Last, matching math problems with eggs. I did not do this but my friend who teaches 1st grade next door did. I saw it the morning of and plan on doing it next year:) She was kind enough to allow me to take a picture of it. I think that it can be adapted easily for different math skills and grade levels! :)
