Description

The Life Cycle of a Chicken Objects features the four stages of Aves, the scientific name of the classification of birds. These objects form an integral part of the Montessori teaching, providing a tangible learning resource for the Child.  Handling the objects, their muscles absorb the look and feel of the individual parts of the chicken.  Concrete objects are the first step in developing language skills, and as children grow, so their verbal skills grow moving onto the abstract understanding of the words to describe the concrete objects.

A hen will lay 1 egg per day; on average; depending on the weather, nutrition etc. If the egg is fertilized, the embryo inside the egg will generally grow for 21 days, and will use the egg yolk as a means of nutrition. The mother hen will sit on her eggs to keep them at an optimum temperature. The ‘baby chick’ uses their ‘egg tooth’ to peck a hole in the eggshell around the air sac to access oxygen, before pipping an area large enough for it to be free of its shell. This process can take up to 24 hours and should not be rushed. A chicken will continue to grow and develop- learning common chicken behaviours such as roosting and foraging under the guidance of their mothers. Within six months the bird will have developed all of it’s adult features, and is now considered a mature chicken.
