PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this unit you will find materials for five different life cycles. The life cycles that are covered in this unit are ant, butterfly, chicken, frog and mealworm.

There are a few different materials that you will find at your fingertips to help you teach your students about life cycles. I have made teaching posters for each of the life cycles as well as provided you with a definition of life cycle and metamorphosis.

There are also worksheets to be completed as a way to assess your students understanding of the changes living things go through.

I have made 5 ribbon craftivities to display each life cycle. All the templates are included in both color and black and white. To add to your craft I have made each stage of the animal or insect in the life cycle on cards to add to the ribbon. It will be a great display for your classroom!

In addition I have added text for all 5 animals/insects. You can use them as research resources or just for your knowledge. They are just an added resource for you and your studnets.

Last, as a fun way for your students to show what they learned in life cycles I like to let them do a little writing! We make “A Diary Of A “______” book! I use the Diary Of A Spider, Worm, and Fly book series written by Doreen Cronin to help kick off the activity! I have included a character selection planning guide, an eight day storyboard planning sheet, diary template pages, about the writer page and teaching posters for speech and thought bubbles. This is a great writing and science connection!

This unit is tons of science fun with a little writing on the side! I hope you enjoy making as well as learning about how all these animals/insects grow and change.
