Plants, insects, snakes, salmon, eagles, elephants, humans; these living things all pass through a life cycle from birth to adulthood. Examine moth cocoons, the feather gills of a salamander larva, beaver yearlings, and more to discover how each life cycle is different and unique! Colorful images and fun facts paired with age-appropriate text will keep third-grade students engaged from cover to cover! Featuring a hands-on “Think Like a Scientist” lab activity that is aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards, this book helps students apply what they've learned in the text and supports STEM instruction. Helpful diagrams and text features, such as a glossary and index, are also included to improve content-area literacy.
