Over the last few weeks, we have been working on animal life cycles. We learned about a butterfly's and frog's life cycle. And we are now learning about a chicken's life cycle by hatching chicks! I'm not really a pet person, nor do I like the thought of dealing with these little furry creatures breaking out from shells and having to take care of them. BUT I know that it will be a great learning experience for my little second graders.
Here are some of the activities we did in our class for a frog's life cycle!
Sorry for the picture quality... I've been using my phone a lot.
Here's an activity I found on Pinterest for the butterfly's life cycle.
|I put the food on a plate on each student table for them to choose from when completing the activity|
Brainpop Jr. also has some great quick videos on life cycles.
