Dinosaur Train book about how Buddy hatched from an egg when he said, "We should do a project about eggs hatching!"
I'm pretty much always up for a project and it seemed like a good opportunity to talk about all the different animals that hatch from eggs. I found the perfect book at the library called Chickens Aren't the Only Ones. Of course, it's all about the different animals that hatch from eggs. It gives enough good scientific information to be appropriate for older readers, but it's so concise and engaging that my toddler and preschooler enjoyed it too. The illustrations are great and could keep you busy for a long time. There were lots of animals that I didn't know/wouldn't have thought of included in the book.
For our project, we folded paper in half and cut egg shapes, leaving the top connected so we had an egg that opened.
We also read some fiction books about eggs and did another egg project. I hope you'll check out that post too!
