Description: Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Inspired by the feature book CHICKENS AREN'T THE ONLY ONES, LeVar searches for the answer to this age-old question. Assuming the role of reporter, LeVar visits a chicken farm and provides viewers with eggsclusive information about how baby chicks are kept safe until their final moment of hatching. LeVar also travels to the beaches of Melbourne, Florida, where he discovers majestic loggerhead turtles emerging from the ocean to lay and bury their eggs in the sand.

Activity Suggestion: Kids can use research skills to find out the size of various animals' eggs. Then using math skills, have students make a bar graph to show the various sizes of the eggs.
