The worksheets in this file show the life cycles of 6 major animal groups - insects (both complete, the butterfly, and incomplete, the praying mantis) metamorphosis, fish (salmon), amphibian (frog), reptile (sea turtle), bird (chicken), and mammal (cow). Students cut and paste the stages onto the cycle.
Also included are diagrams for students to label the distinguishing parts of each animal group.
Last are complete full colour posters of each of the life cycles for instruction and display purposes.
Included also are the Gr. 2 Ontario curriculum expectations for the assignment. These worksheets can be used any time the life cycles of animals are being taught.
