Our "Animal Life Cycles" unit looks at the life cycles of ten different animals. It studies two different mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds and insects. Children learn how these animals live, plus how they grow and change as they move from young animals to adults. Children practice their reading and writing skills as they read and learn about the different animals. They use their knowledge to answer a number of questions. Animals studies are: Black Bears, Blue Whales, Turtles, Garter Snakes, Frogs, Salamanders, Canada Geese, Penguins, Ladybugs, and Honeybees. Also included in this unit are: Animal Fact Cards, Research Outline, Final Report Outline, Match Game, Riddles, Unit Test and Unit Evaluation. This Animal Science lesson provides a teacher and student section with a variety of reading passages, lessons, activities, crossword and word search to create a well-rounded lesson plan.

Great resource! Lots of useful resources to teach the topic!
Lots of information
I used this resource with my 2/3 split class. It fit well with the Grade 3 Alberta curriculum. There were a few animals I had to do a little bit more with the animal life cycles as it talked more about the animal habitat and food than the life cycle. Overall loved the product and worked very well with my grade 2 and 3's.
My kids loved this!
Amazing resource. Left it for my Sub who greatly appreciated having a thorough resource
perfect addition to the unit, thanks
As a new science teacher, this is really useful.
great source but difficult to use with an EIP group.
A great resource that you can use in a number of ways - the kids loved the research cards and the word activities too. Thanks!
This worked really well in my Grade 2/3 class! Lots of extensions and choices for lessons in this kit.
Absolutely love this, such a great resource!
A go to resource for my class.
Good resource for getting students used to looking for specific information on each animal.
My class loves this. Thanks
Exactly what I was looking for as a great cross-curricular unit during our animal life cycles chapters in science.
Great resource for my second grade students.
