Theme: A look at all the different kinds of animals that hatch from eggs.
Chickens are not the only animals that lay eggs. In this book we learn that many animals lay eggs. This means they are oviparous.
A look at all the different kinds of animals that hatch from eggs is the emphasis of this episode. LeVar begins by visiting a hatchery and finding out how chicks hatch. Then he joins a biologist to visit loggerhead turtles in Florida as they lay their eggs in the sand on the beach. After the turtles hatch they make their way back to the ocean.
Field Trip Segments:
Which Came First - The Chicken or the Egg? - LeVar is an EGG-TV reporter, who tries to find the answer to the question - "Which came first, the chicken or the egg?" from roosters and chickens at the Moyer Hatchery.
I'm Breaking Out- LeVar visits the incubator room at the hatchery and the song "I'm Breaking Out" is sung as a baby chick hatches from it's shell.
Loggerhead Turtles- LeVar joins a turtle biologist to watch loggerhead turtles lay their eggs in the sand. They later return to watch the turtles hatch and make their way back to the ocean.
