This life cycle unit aligns to second grade common core. Students can compare information from the three version of text about each life cycle and participate in shared research projects about the life cycles!
This unit includes 3 articles for each of the following life cycles:
Each article is a little different and allows the students to sort through the information to decide what information is important about the life cycle they are researching and what information they may not need. You can make these articles into booklets and use them during guided reading or group students for a shared research project.
This unit also includes images and labels for each life cycle (great for student posters or bulletin board displays) and descriptions of each stage of the life cycle with images. There are also graphic organizers for your students to use when doing their research on these life cycles.
