My cousins have arrived, safe & sound, and I have taken just a little minute to blog with all of you! My S.T. Amanda has come up
with yet another cute Easter activity!
This one will require you to read the book “The Odd Egg” by Emily Gravett. You can always do this activity without the book as well. The book is about an odd looking egg that does not hatch with all the others. The ducks seem to think there is something wrong with it and do not believe that a duck will hatch. At the end of the book, we learn that an alligator hatches from the egg. The kiddies can draw and write their predictions has to what is in the egg and then create this wonderful masterpiece! Amanda chose to predict that their was a peacock in the egg!
Don’t forget to hide the ending from the kiddies until AFTER they have made their predictions! So much fun!
This is a great science activity too! You can discuss all the different animals that hatch from eggs. This way, the students will have a good idea of what the possible animal is! We asked the students to predict an animal that does hatch from an egg, as opposed to choosing anything! Some kiddies really wanted to make dogs and cats and other animals, however we insisted upon it being something that does come out of an egg.
You can grab yourself an EGG template right over HERE!
Simply copy it to card stock so that the kiddies can trace it on their preferred construction paper color.
You can always make your own as well, or you can let the kiddies make their own!
You can get the prediction sheet right over HERE!
P.S. I was finally able to scan the bunny template properly! Yippee! So I have uploaded a better version of it! If you wanted to have the kiddies complete the Bunny activity from my post below, you can grab a better copy of the template right over HERE!
Hope you all have a wonderful Easter and enjoy these little treats with your kiddies!
P.P.S. Here are some of the kiddies bunnies! Too stinking cute!
Until next time...
