OBJECTIVE

Students will learn about eggs, chickens, and hatching eggs.

MATERIALS

Chart paper
markers

Procedure

Discuss what the students know about eggs, chickens, and hatching (brainstorming).

After discussion, divide the students into groups, distribute chart paper and markers to begin the webbing activity.

Begin to make a web of knowledge radiating around the egg and chick topic. A sample web follows.

The webs may be done as a group project, as a class project, or as individual exercises. Save the webs for use at the end of the Unit. (Display the webs in the classroom.)


Note:
Some groups of students will be very limited in the knowledge of chickens and you will need to supplement their knowledge.
