п»їLesson 5: Live versus Hatched

Big Ideas of the Lesson

A few animals happen to be born alive.

Some animals hatch coming from eggs.

Mothers take care of all their babies when they are little.

Many baby family pets cannot take care of themselves.


This lesson is targeted on identifying just how animals are born. Kids read a book and watch videos about your life cycles and animal moms. They make a chart of animals that hatch via eggs and animals which have been born surviving.

Grade Level Context Expectation(s)

Children can:

generate inquiries based on findings of various creature life periods (S. IP. 01. 12). communicate and present studies of observations of parent/young characteristics (S. IA. 01. 13). sort out young family pets based on qualities that are given to from parents (e. g., dogs/puppies, cats/kittens, cows/calves, chickens/chicks) (L. HE. 01. 12). describe lifespan cycle of animals such as following periods: egg, small, adult; egg, larva, herida, adult (L. OL. 01. 21).
