Join Leishawn Spotted Bear from the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History for a totally immersive program that will have your students observing, predicting, writing, drawing and interacting, all around eggs. Eggs are one of nature's most perfect designs and are an incredible way to learn about life cycles, adaptations and survival. We'll use simple materials like chicken eggs to bring out your student's observation skills and specimens from our teaching collection to hone their ability to predict. Throughout the session, the purpose of eggs and the life cycles of animals that lay eggs will be emphasized.

Please note: This program has been created for individual classroom interaction. Program maximum is 30 students per session.

2. Your students view a variety of eggs, comparing common characteristics.
3. Each group of students will receive an egg to observe chicken eggs-inside and out (interactive activity)
4. After your students crack their egg open and observe the different parts, we'll identify parts and function of egg
5. We'll play an egg identification game with students, using eggs from our collection.
6. Students meet a live animal from our collection who hatched from an egg.
7. If time allows, we'll take a few questions from the group.

Please note: This program has been created for individual classroom interaction. Program maximum is 30 students per session.
