With the beginning of a new season, the girls have started to notice some changes happening. The birds are returning to campus and the air is warmer. Through our study of dinosaurs, the girls made the realization that dinosaurs hatched from eggs. This allowed us to ask the question, What other animals do you know that hatch from eggs? Birds, was the overwhelming answer. We then asked the question, Do you think other animals hatch from eggs? Most girls agreed that more animals hatch from eggs. This is where we began our research of eggs and nests.
