Chickens the Only Ones?

Subject: Language Arts, Social Sciences, Science
Overview: Students explore information about different animals that lay eggs, and study world maps to find the continents where the animals live. Students use their research to create picture books containing facts about those egg-laying animals. Then, each student shares his or her book with a partner; partners are expected to offer positive comments about one another's books.
