Author: Lea Schumaker, Golden Oaks Elementary School
Subject Area: Language Arts
Grade: K-2
Time Required: 1 hour prep time; 1 hour class time; 1 hour for final book assembly

Learning Outcomes:

Students will learn about eggs and oviparous (egg-laying) animals.  Students will have the opportunity to exercise their fine-motor skills by drawing, coloring, and using scissors.

Materials:

Large sheets of construction paper, any color, on which the outline of an egg has been drawn
Scissors
Crayons and markers
Laminator
Hole punch
2 large metal binding rings

Activities:

After class, laminate each egg, punch holes, and assemble a book using metal binding rings.  On each facing page, write "What's inside of [student's name]'s egg?   Then on each egg, write "A [student's chosen animal] is inside [student's name]'s egg!"
 
example:

"What's inside of Tyler's egg?"
"A snake is inside of Tyler's egg!"

This student-made, large-format book is nice to display during Open House or Parent/Teacher Conferences.  The children are so proud that they made their own book!
