We enjoy learning about birds during the spring. From eggs, to feathers, to nests, there is a lot to explore! One of our readers, Dagmar Brumovska shared this fantastic bird egg activity with us… including a free printable! You can find this printable in Dagmar’s brand new TpT store HERE. Make sure you follow her so you can keep up with her latest offerings.
Once in a while we’re lucky enough to hatch eggs in our class. Learning about how the little embryo develops in the egg, turning the eggs over every day, and finally watching the the first little crack and hearing that first little peep make for a very exciting spring!
