Many of our garden birds look the same (to our human eyes at least) whether they are male or female. But some can be told apart. Use this spotting sheet to see if you can tick off both males and females of these birds!
I will print these back to back on A4 card and laminate and cut them (Sheet 1 has the front and Sheet 2 has the back). Put the eggs in one bag/pouch/box and sperm in another (pupils should not be able to see what they are picking out). Pass each bag/pouch/box around the class and ask pupils to pick out one card from each bag. XX is female, XY is male - This activity is to emphasize that sex is determined randomly - and also that it is the sperm that determines the sex of the baby. I am planning on having a pink pouch for mum and blue for dad if anyone else wants to use the same idea....
Great resources to have in one document.I use this alongside a magic bag with objects from the rhymes. <br />Appropriate for Early Childhood Education (Pre-K and younger). ECE-LT, ECE-LT-al, ECE-LT-pc
