Mother Duck's Eggs

When Mother Duck goes away, she covers her eggs with feathers to keep them warm.
This is Isabel's picture of Mother Duck's nest and eggs.
We wonder how many eggs are hiding under the feathers?

Room 8 have been reading the book Taniwha by Robyn Kahukiwa.
Today in the Orchard, we drew taniwhas in Kidpix.
We also found a cool picture of a taniwha on the internet,
Ryka worked really hard to draw a taniwha just like the one we found.
He did a great job - what do you think?
This is Ryka's picture.
And this is the one we found on the internet.
