At Education Guru we love to use stories to start off our science lessons. So here are a couple of suggestions for the Easter theme:
The Odd Egg by Emily Gravett which illustrates, to the surprise of some children that not all eggs have birds in them. Great links to Y2& Y1 science:
identify and name a variety of common animals including fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals
identify and name a variety of common animals that are carnivores, herbivores and omnivores
AND not for the faint hearted
Mummy Laid an Egg by Babette Cole which talks about human reproduction in a way you may never have seen before which involves a space hopper!
Y5 describe the changes as humans develop to old age
describe the life process of reproduction in some plants and animals
