For the Life Cycle activities below, if you fancy getting a bit crafty, you could make a model of the life cycle(s) instead - we'd love to see any pictures! 

 

Monday 20th April:

Task 1: The Life Cycle of a Mammal

☼ Download the PowerPoint below (Life Cycles: Mammals, Amphibians, Insects, Birds). As indicated on Slide 2, brainstorm with an adult anything you already know about mammals, amphibians, insects and birds.

☼ Work through the slides until you reach Slide 7 - stop here. For the activity you have a choice:

  • Use the resource sheet (available below) to cut and stick (or draw yourself), and organise them in the correct order of an elephant's life cycle (think carefully about how you lay this out).
  • Choose a mammal of your own and complete as above.
  • Must: Copy/stick the life cycle cards into your book in the correct order.
  • Should: As above, and write a description next to each picture explaining each stage of the life cycle.
  • Could: As above, and find two (or more) facts about the life cycle of an elephant (or the different animal you may have chosen), writing these down in your book beneath the life cycle.

We recommend recording the short date, subject and focus at the start (just like we would in school, but simpler) to help you keep track.

 

Tuesday 21st April:

Task 1: The Life Cycle of an Amphibian

☼ Continue with the PowerPoint you started yesterday (from Slide 8) until you reach Slide 10 (then stop). 

☼ Use the diagram provided to present your learning about the life cycle of a frog (or another amphibian of your choosing).

  • Must: Include labelled diagrams in the correct sequence.
  • Should: As above, and write a short explanation next to each stage of the life cycle.
  • Could: As above, and make a comparison between the life cycle of a frog and one other amphibian (and include a diagram with explanations of its life cycle if you haven't already).

We recommend recording the short date, subject and focus at the start (just like we would in school, but simpler) to help you keep track.

 

Thursday 22nd April:

Task 1: The Life Cycles of Insects

☼ Continue with the Life Cycles PowerPoint, starting with Slide 11 and work through until the end.

☼ Research the life cycles of two different insects.

  • Must: Draw a diagram and explain the life cycle of each insect.
  • Should: As above, and compare the two life cycles - what is similar and what is different? You could create a table.
  • Could: As above, and present your comparisons in a Venn diagram.

We recommend recording the short date, subject and focus at the start (just like we would in school, but simpler) to help you keep track.​​​​​​​
