What Comes from Eggs?

A couple of weeks ago I saw a picture on Instagram from Teach Preschool.  Debra shared this image that her assistant made of a game to match eggs to where they came from.  I thought it was a brilliant idea and made one for our centre.  Thank you Miss Abby for sharing the idea.
I found this plastic sorting box at a thrift store for $.49, just thrilled to find it when I needed it.  The toys came from a mix of bought Toob Toys and toys I already had in my centre.  The egg pictures were found on line by searching for habitats of each of the animals.  They are just taped in the bottom of each section so I can reuse the box later.
The homemade toy has been a playful way to learn more about creatures that come from eggs and their habitats.
The children’s vocabulary has increased as they have learned more about each animal. 
They worked together to figure out which animal matched the right picture.
