Animal Life Cycles

Students participate in numerous activities to gather information about parts of the life cycle. In this life science lesson, the teacher choose from a number of activities to create or support an interdisciplinary unit about the life cycle. Activities include hands-on experiences with animals in the classroom and writing assignments.

Marine Animal Life Cycles

Students study the life cycle of a crab and the larval stages of marine animals. In this marine animals lesson plan, students watch a puppet introduction to a crab's life cycle.  Students learn about crab moulting and their life cycle stages. Students view pictures of the stages and learn the varieties of crabs. As extension, students may study crabs in various learning stations.

Lesson Plan for Pasta Butterfly Life Cycle

Students create a butterfly life cycle model using different pasta. In this life science lesson, students identify the correct order of life cycle stages. They compare how their model is similar to the life cycle of a real butterfly.

Life Cycles in Action - Flip Book

Students create a flip book to depict animal and plant life cycles. In this life cycle lesson, students discuss life cycles. Students receive a plant or animal and pictures of its life cycle. Students color the pictures and order them. Students then create a flip book for their life cycle.

Mosquito Life Cycle

Seventh graders investigate the life cycle of the mosquito. In this life cycle lesson, 7th graders gain knowledge about the diseases mosquitos carry. Students breed mosquitos and investigate their eggs. Students collect and record data daily and analyze the growth rate of mosquitos.

Chicken Life Cycles

Students explore the role of eggs in the life cycle of chickens. They observe each egg part individually and compare their findings to how the egg works as a whole. Students classify the parts of a chicken and compare and contrast them to human anatomy.

Life Cycle of Stars and Star Finder

Students examine the life cycle of stars by enacting the life cycles of different types of stars and illustrating the rarity of black hole producing stars using balloons. Students also create a star finder to locate stars and constellations in the sky. Lesson also includes a field trip activity for visiting the Adler Planetarium & Astronomy Museum.

Life Cycles: Butterflies

Students with moderate and severe disabilities explore the life cycle of a butterfly. In this life cycle lesson, students participate in a variety of activities that explain a butterfly life cycle. Students read a story and conduct observations which helps to begin the understanding of the butterfly life cycle. Students also participate in an activity where they create a butterfly nursery which allows them to examine the life cycle closely.

Animated Video Productions - Life Cycles

Seventh graders compare/contrast the life cycles of free-living organisms to that of parasites. They conduct Internet research, illustrate the stages of a specific organisms's life cycle, and direct and produce a mini-video production.

Animal Life Cycle

Students conduct hands-on experiments. In this life cycle lesson, students are able to observe a variety of animals as they travel through their life cycle (brine shrimp, mealworms, frog eggs and chicken eggs). Students respond to what they've seen by pretending they are one of the animals observed and write their life story.
