As part of our Life Cycle Theme Study, we’re giving away the simply wonderful book First The Egg by Laura Vaccaro Seeger.
First The Egg tackles the age-old question: Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
Ms Trisha’s class is tackling the question: What is an Oviparous Animal? (Try saying that three times!)
Oviparous animals are animals that lay eggs, with little or no other embryonic development within the mother. This is the reproductive method of most fish, amphibians, reptiles, all birds, the monotremes, and most insects, some molluscs and arachnids. * Wikipedia
After Ms Trisha read books about oviparous animals, the children brainstormed a chart about classifying animals as oviparous.
Is a butterfly an oviparous animal? Yes!
Is a snake an oviparous animal? Yes!
Is a turtle an oviparous animal? Yes!
Is a fish an oviparous animal? Yes!
I especially enjoyed seeing the children exploring early literacy writing skills.
