Have you ever wondered what came first? The chicken or the egg? Or how we can eat some eggs, but others have baby chicks growing inside of them? Today we are going to explore the life cycle of a chicken!




First, you are going to watch these three videos on the life cycle of a chicken. 


After you have watched these videos, you are going to make your own hatching chick in your small group. It will look somewhat like this:


Here is an interactive game that you can then play. There are lots of games to explore on this website- so check it out! 



I hope all of you were able to learn a little bit about the life cycle of a chicken. Isn't it cool how we can eat some eggs, and other eggs grow baby chicks inside?!
