Life Cycle

Last week, we talked about Life Cycle and Metamorphosis. My students loved the word METAMORPHOSIS. It was fun to teach them about it. At school, I have access to Brainpop Jr. and used one of their videos to introduce the topic.
We learned about the Butterfly Life Cycle, the Frog Life Cycle and the Human Life Cycle. 

I started the week by letting the students draw their own life cycle. Here are some of their work.

For the Butterfly Life Cycle, I let my student create a flap book in which they drew and described the stages. 

They did a great job!

Later in the week, I started talking about simple metamorphosis and complete metamorphosis. To make sure they understood the concept, I let them create an unique insect. They needed to draw a picture of their insect and their life cycle. Also they needed to identify if their insect had a simple or a complete metamorphosis. I can assure you they all mastered the concept.

I ended my week talking about the Frog Life Cycle, and I found a very cute craft at Mrs. T's First Grade  Class

Before saying good-bye, I would love to share with you a gift from one of my students! This is the cutest and most creative pencil holder I have ever seen in my life! I love it!!!

 I have two more weeks before my summer starts! I am planning to let my students work on their memory books soon!
