Chickens Lapbook Lessons
Here are some sample lessons from the Chickens Lapbook:
The Making of a Chick
How are chicks made? First, a rooster mates with a hen. This fertilizes the egg so a chick can grow. Then the hen prepares her nest. The hen lays an egg about every 24 hours. The hen gently sits on her eggs. The hen turns her eggs to keep them warm all over. This is called incubation. A baby chick hatches from the egg in about three weeks. The mother hen gives some food to the baby chick.
Chicks Growing Up
Within a few weeks of hatching, chicks have feathers. In just a few months, the chicks will be full grown chickens (and roosters). By the time they are five months old, they will be laying eggs.
This Chickens Lapbook even includes chicken jokes!
- Why did the chicken cross the road? To get to the other side
- Why did the monster cross the road? It was the chicken’s day off!
- What do you get if you cross a chicken with a cement mixer? A brick layer
- If a rooster lays an egg on the middle of the roof, on which side will it fall? Neither! Roosters don’t lay eggs.
- Which side of the chicken has the prettiest feathers? The outside!
- What do you get if you cross a chicken with a cow? Roost beef!
