Life Cycle Sorts
I created this resource to help all my learners understand the NGSS 3-LS1-1 and 3-LS2-1 standards.
This resource includes sorts for...
→ Life cycle stages (words)
→ Life cycle stages (pictures)
→ Mothers that have many babies vs. few babies (pictures)
→ Mothers who stay with their young vs. mothers who leave (pictures)
→ Babies with a short growth stage vs. long growth stage
→ Mothers that are present for the birth vs. not present
→ Digital Sorts
By having students practice sorting the pictures with different categories, they develop an understanding that the mothers who stay with their young and are present for the birth only have a few babies at a time because they can't take care of many babies & mothers who leave their young have many babies so that some will survive and keep the species going.
This resource includes a paper version to cut and sort, and a powerpoint version for students to digitally "sort" by clicking and dragging the pictures under the correct box.
