A chicken's life

I've been trying to find some ways to teach the boy Science subjects. But i couldn't find an experiment that is mess free with minimal preparation. Then it occurred to me that the best way to teach any subject is to read a book! So off to the library i went!

Our first Science topic is about the Life Cycle of a Chicken. This was our 'textbook'!
I simply love books by Acorn series- its apt for toddlers like Sonshine boy! It has one line per page and very clear illustrations- i love such books because it brings out the message very clearly to the child.

I created some activity for him to reinforced what we read from the book. He had to arrange the pictures and word labels accordingly

Sonshine boy had to match the labels according to what we've learnt from the book.

And here's killing 2 birds with 1 stone. N traced the words 'hen' and wrote the words. This way i have him practise his handwriting and learn how to spell at the same time!
