Oviparious and Viviparous

We studied Oviparous and Viviparous animals. I found these apps for my iPhone. This first one is very easy, 4 cracks and it opens.  Here is the deal, it is a random creature (most of the time lol) I used this with the K-1's. When they cracked the egg, they had to tell us if it were oviparous or viviparous. 
{Side note-it does have several things that aren't either, and they laugh and laugh lol! Anyways, one says Happy Easter all over, one is jelly beans, and one is an egg.) The students love this. They have been asking to crack the egg for two weeks now.  

 Of course I must show the egg hatched a frog!  lol

This one is a little harder one, not for the creatures, but the amount of times it takes to crack the egg!!! I am talking a good 20-30 seconds lol.  Anyways, it is the same concept as the younger kids version. They were both free apps.

Both apps make sound, but I don't usually turn on the sound.

We sorted pictures in a pocket chart and then the students got their very own to sort and color in their science logs.
