Learning Objective

Students will learn about how mother chickens care for their babies and raise them.

Description

Children will learn all about the lifecycle of a chicken. They will learn about egg development and how the hen takes care of her eggs and babies. Students will learn about chicken growth and development. This includes a read-aloud story about a broody hen and the life cycle of a chicken. There are center activities and students will learn about how a hen takes care of her chicks. Students will also learn about chicken growth and development. This resource is a darling true story of a broody bantam hen. She wanted to sit on eggs and hatch them and raise chicks. She sat on her own eggs and tried to hatch them, but they were not fertilized so they did not hatch. She even sat on a golf ball! Banti’s person got her some fertilized eggs from a farm and she goes on to raise some chicks.  

This beautifully told story is in a slide show format and is perfect for a read-aloud story. Young children will love following Banti’s adventures and watch her raise her chicks.

There are response pages for the story of Banti, as well as, center activities and follow-up pages on chick growth and development.  

**My work, including the slide show, is not editable for copyright reasons.

This is perfect for a unit on the farm or chick hatching!  The story is beautifully illustrated artwork and photos. There are video clips included. Students will learn about the lifecycle of a chicken, chick growth and development, embryology, and more.
