Today, I thought I'd share some pictures from our homeschool co-op meeting, where we learned all about the life cycle of a chicken.
First, we read a few books together ... What Will Hatch? by Jennifer Ward ...
... Chick to Hen by Steve Parker ...
... and The Chicken or the Egg? by Allan Fowler.
Then, we met our chicken visitor!
The kids got to sit in a circle and pet her.
(Maggie was tickled!)
Then, we moved on to a couple of activities. First, we did a sequencing activity (out of the Beginning Sequencing workbook by Evan-Moor) where we put in order the steps of a chick breaking out of its shell.
Here is Mags and her best friend, Olivia, working.
Next, we made this chicken life cycle craft, which is seen often on Pinterest, using construction paper, glue, scissors, markers, googly eyes, and a little red paint. (This was our host's example for the kids.)
Looks great, Mags! (This is her 'I don't want to take another picture' smile.)
