Egg or Baby in Living with Non-Living – Class 6 Science Experiment

Chapter Name: Living with Non-Living

Activity Name: Egg or Baby in Living with Non-Living

Activity Description:

The experiment aims to classify birds and animals based on their method of reproduction, specifically focusing on whether they lay eggs or give birth to young ones.

By observing the animals and birds in their surroundings, the students will create a table listing the species and categorize them as oviparous (laying eggs) or viviparous (giving birth to young ones).

Required Items:

  1. Notebook
  2. Pen or pencil

Step by Step Procedure:

  1. Form a group with 4 or 5 students.
  2. List out birds and animals from your surroundings. You can observe the animals and birds in your neighborhood, local park, or any nearby natural areas.
  3. Write down the names of the birds and animals in your notebook.
  4. Determine how each bird or animal produces its young ones. Note whether they lay eggs or give birth to live young ones.
  5. Create a table in your notebook with two columns: “Animals/Birds” and “Method of Reproduction.”
  6. Write the names of the birds and animals in the “Animals/Birds” column.
  7. In the “Method of Reproduction” column, write “Lay eggs” for the animals and birds that lay eggs, and “Give birth to young ones” for those that give birth without laying eggs.
  8. Extend the list by researching and adding more birds and animals to the table. You can use books, websites, or other resources to find information about different species.
  9. Discuss and compare the observations with your group members.
  10. Keep the notebook and table for future reference.

Experiment Observations:

  1. The table in your notebook should list the birds and animals and indicate whether they lay eggs or give birth to young ones.
  2. The observations will vary depending on the birds and animals in your surroundings.


  1. Ensure that you observe birds and animals from a safe distance and do not disturb them or their habitats.
  2. If you are unable to observe certain birds or animals directly, you can gather information from reliable sources.

Lesson Learnt from Experiment:

Through this experiment, you will learn about the different methods of reproduction in birds and animals. You will understand that some species lay eggs to give birth to their young ones (oviparous), while others give birth to live young ones without laying eggs (viviparous).

This activity helps you observe and appreciate the diversity of reproductive strategies in the animal kingdom.
