Life Cycles

At the start of this topic, I taught the children about plant reproduction. First, they labelled the parts of a flower to learn the vocabulary and then they dissected a flower each to observe the parts themselves. After learning about the life cycle of the plant, they created a drama in groups to act out the process.

Next, we looked at different life cycles (a mammal, an amphibian, an insect and a bird). They had to compare them finding the similarities and differences.


This topic is very hands-on and practical and so it involved a series of Science investigations.
