These Life Cycles Sequencing Activities include 4 Adapted Books and 4 accompanying worksheets. Each of the Adapted Books teaches a simple 4 step life cycle for each of the following animals and/or insects: butterfly, frog, chicken, and ladybug. All of the books include hands-on interaction with the text and reinforce sequencing skills.
Adapted Books Included:
This Is How a Butterfly is Born
This Is How a Frog is Born
This Is How a Ladybug is Born
This is How a Chicken is Born
The teacher or therapist reads book as students follow along, matching each step of the life cycle on each page. At the end of the book, students sequence the complete life cycle of the animal. Students working independently can work through the book at a literacy or science center. When they are done with the book, they can complete the corresponding cut and glue life cycle worksheet.
First there is a butterfly.
Next it lays eggs on a leaf.
Then a caterpillar hatches, eats and grows a lot.
Last the caterpillar attaches itself to a twig and forms a pupa. When the butterfly comes out of the pupa, the life cycle starts over again.
This is how a butterfly is born.
