What a wonderful week we have had, learning all about chickens. The Life Cycle of a Chicken is such a cool thing to learn about. I would love to raise chickens so the kids can see the amazing process in real life. Unfortunately, our neighborhood doesn’t allow it, so that will have to wait. I came up with the next best thing for us, a chicken unit study. Learning all about Chickens plus a few fun science activities makes for a wonderful week.
Life Cycle of a Chicken Activities
In this picture, it may look like they are just holding eggs, but actually, they are squeezing the eggs as hard as they can. Eggs although they seem easily breakable, they aren’t at all.
We finished up our Egg Science with rolling races on the porch. Do they wobble, do they roll straight? What are some of the questions that need answering about eggs? Isn’t that one of the best things about Science? Having questions, making educated guesses, and then actually being able to experiment with the object.
Science Rocks! Are you ready to check out some other fun life cycles?
