Bird Life Cycles

Today was Bird Life Cycle Day.  Once we finish these, we will add them to our lap book.  We read An Egg is Quiet (an amazingly cool book!) and discussed the lifecycle of a bird.  I had the pieces to make a life cylcle wheel already cut out and students worked on adding labels and illustrations to them.  I challenged them to be specific and find a bird they really liked; then find the type of egg it lays and if they chick had a specific name (like gosling), instead of being generic with their pictures.  Here is what some of them came up with:
Parakeets...I am loving that she is doing art on the table, with her "art folder" just above her:-)
Red Winged Black Bird

American Robin

Weather finally cooperating, for working outside.
Tomorrow, I will have a parent add a brad to the middle, so the wheels can move around the different pictures of the life cycle. 

Happy Monday,


  1. I always enjoy seeing the meaningful learning that's going in your room.

    1. I had heard of the book, but hadn't read it. Love it!
