These cross-curricular duck life cycle activities are the perfect compliment to a hatching ducklings life cycle unit! Enriching unit covers four subject areas: science, math, writing, and language arts! Kids LOVE this unit and they especially LOVE the duckling birth certificates that are included!
Here is what you get:
-Suggested book list with fiction and nonfiction books about ducks. Accelerated Reader levels are included.
-A plot graph for predicting how many eggs will hatch.  If you only have one student, this plot graph can be done by asking friends and family members how many eggs they think will hatch. 
-A narrative writing prompt- “Pretend you are a duckling who is about to hatch out of your egg. A graphic organizer and cute duckling lined paper are included.
-A friendly letter- Students will write a friendly letter saying good-bye to their feathered friends at the end of your unit.
-Duck vocabulary and ABC order practice page
-Egg vocabulary and ABC order practice page
-A fun word search with all of the duck and egg vocabulary words
-Embryology and candling- explanation of what candling is, how to do it, and how to observe the development of your chicks right before your very eyes! Observation tracking charts are included so that students can make notes and predictions about which eggs they think will hatch, based on their observations.
-Life Cycle of a Duck- a cut and paste activity
-Two cute birth certificate options to choose from. They also come in black and white so students can color. Students really love to name their ducklings and fill these out!
