PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product includes 13 insect life cycle cards. Each insect includes picture cards and text cards for each stage in that insects life cycle. There are 7 incomplete metamorphosis life cycles and 6 complete metamorphosis. Teacher instructions are listed below. Some insects include simple life cycles of just 3-4 stages, but others include several steps for the larva stage and nymph stage. The longest set includes 8 steps. This allows for differentiation and/or scaffolding. Time duration may vary based on the number of sets required for each student and/or understanding.

These cards can be used many ways, intervention, discovery, reinforcement, independent practice, etc. but below I have listed the way I use them in my classroom.

1st: Cut out each picture card (pages 3-6) and place all cards with the same number in their own baggie.
2nd: Cut each text card (pages 10-12) out and place all cards with the same number with the corresponding picture cards in the same baggie.
3rd: Give one baggie to each student/group and tell them to place the cards in order matching the text to the picture.
4th: Ask students to fill out the student answer document (page 12-13) including the number of their baggie. Note: All blanks may not be needed for each baggie., they are listing the order of the letters on their text cards.
5th: After answering all questions for their baggie, have students switch baggies and repeat steps 3 and 4.

Answer key for both the pictures and the text cards are included.
