To coincide with our work on eggs this week we are going to read the story Millie's Chickens. In this story Millie shows her readers how she looks after her three hens, one rooster and 7 chicks.
After reading the book or watching it on youtube can you talk about all the ways in which Millie cares for her chickens. If your child has a pet of their own, compare looking after chickens to looking after a dog, cat, goldfish or hamster. What are the similarities and what are the differences?
You and your child could also use the internet or books at home to find out more information about chickens and their life cycle. Check out the link for a fun life cycle song!
