What's hatching out of that egg? Students research creatures that lay eggs.
During a unit of study focused on animals that lay eggs, invite students to view a variety of electronic pictures on the subject, as well as sharing read alouds with the class such as Chickens Aren't the Only Ones by Ruth Heller. Discuss animals that lay eggs and the process of birthing from an egg shell. Then invite students to create their own egg-hatching animal.
Students begin by covering their work space with recycled newspaper. Tear recycled newspaper into narrow strips for paper maché. Crumple a piece of recycled newspaper into a large egg-shaped ball.
Mix equal amounts of Crayola® School Glue and water in a bowl. Students dip newspaper strips in glue-water mix. Run fingers down each strip to remove the excess. Cover the crumpled newspaper with the wet strips, overlapping and smoothing. Make at least three layers. Hang the paper maché-covered egg up to dry. This may take a day or longer.
With Crayola Washable Watercolor Paint, students paint dried paper egg. Ask students to consider how they could camouflage the egg to keep it safe in the nest. Hang the painted egg up to dry.
