Oviparous Week!

Hiya there peepers

Shuna here

This week has been awesome

We watched the Reading Rainbow Videos

It was really cool because the kiddos got to see a real chick and turtle hatch.

Last year we hatched eggs and they stunk 

to high heaven

so I knew that I didn't want to got that route again

Here is the vid that we watched

Here is a quick peep at our week

First we started off talking about what oviparous animals are and how to say the word

The kiddos were a mess the first day trying to figure out that word

After I told the kiddos what oviparous means I asked them to think of some other animals that lay eggs

I got everything for Zebras to dragons!


For Pete's sake 

Boy did we have a ways to go

Anyhoo after I showed them some pictures they did a bit better

The kiddos then went and drew a picture of their favorite oviparous animals

How cute is this

The little ostrich is my favorite!

The kiddos then got to practice how how it is and how long it takes for an animal mom to build a nest
After the kiddos built their nest they put their baby egg in the nest

The kiddos had to take care of their egg for a whole week
Check out some of their cute journal writings


We talked about how snails eat their eggs once they hatch

This little baby is "hatching" a snail and she said hers was special because it didn't eat its egg!

We also sorted oviparous animals

You can find the above printables and more here 

We also watched some cool videos on BBC

Be careful though and make sure you preview first

The fish one was a little much!


that was such a fun week

and this isn't even half of what we did! I left my camera at school so I will post out other adventures sometime next week

Next week we will be doing Worms!


I have a little freebie for you that you may want to check out

Peace Out Peeps

  1. Looks like you guys had fun. We started oviparous animals the week before Easter then this week has been spring break. We're going to finish up next week and use some of the activities in your unit. Can't wait to see all the wormy fun you have.
