Simple Life Cycle of a Chicken Unit

Anyone ever confused about how many of the stages we are supposed to teach our kids when it comes to the life cycles?  I decided to stick to the basics with my Kinders, and teach the 4 stages of the life cycle of the chicken.  Here is a unit that will help me introduce and engage them while teaching about those hens!

Here are some goodies that are included in the unit:

Three different sequential order sheets:

3 "can, have, is" sheets
3 describing sheets
1 emergent reader

Venn Diagram
3 sentence sheets
labeling cut and paste
vocabulary matching cut and paste

life cycle poster 
vocabulary pictures to use in a pocket chart or vocab. wall
4 large pictures to display on a bulletin board

Head to my TpT Store to pick one up!


  1. Thanks for sharing about this unit! I added it to my wishlist... not sure if we are doing chicks this year. (can you tell me how you got that neat pin it button at the bottom? I see the hoovering one all over the place and I am afraid of html)
