Teaching A Life Cycle Unit:

Spring is the ideal time to teach a life cycle unit, although you can incorporate learning about life cycles into your lesson plans anytime of the year!

In the springtime, as the weather gets warmer, you don’t have to go very far to find life cycles in action.

Going to a pond or stream you may see some tadpoles and witness the frog life cycle.

Planting seeds in your garden is a wonderful time to talk about plant life cycles.

Just being outdoors in your backyard, you will probably be able to see bee life cycles, ladybug life cycles, and fly life cycles all taking place!

Learning about life cycles can give your children a great appreciation for nature and may help to make them more conscientious of how their choices can affect the environment.

Life cycles can help teach why it is important that we clean up our trash, recycle, and don’t pollute, so we can keep our world healthy and a safe place for animals, plants, and insects to live and grow.
