This Factball is a great addition to any classroom studying the life cycle of various animals and/or plants. Use as a comprehension task, a whole group activity, as an assessment item or a Fast Finisher activity. I've used them in the past as a note-taking activity but really the ways these Factballs could be included in your classroom activities is endless! They are great for incorporating into Literacy centers (centres) as well!!
Each Factball side of the factball is devoted to one stage of the life cycle. The stage is numbered and a clip art that students can colour in is included as a visual aide for that stage. Space has been left for students on each side of the factball to describe what happens in each stage. The answers to each of these sections can be found in the comprehension sheets provided in this resource. These fact sheets are jam packed with interesting information that children will find engaging. They are easy to read and comprehend. One set is suited to lower elementary, the other set is suited to upper elementary.
Please note: additional assistance with comprehension may be required for some students depending on their reading and comprehension level. Vocabulary has been included to help extend students in the field of study.
For extra effect I LOVE printing these pages onto A3 paper (sometimes coloured) and once completed hang them from the string lines in my classroom. They look amazing and are a great way to demonstrate learning to parents!
Included in this resource:
- A Factball template for the Life Cycle of the Bee
- Information/Fact Pages explaining the life cycle of the plant or animal being studied.
Please see preview for further details of how to assemble this Factball and for a visual description of this product.
