Small animals helped us learn about life cycles and how living things change as they grow. Like how plants start as seeds and turn into trees or flowers or grass, animals also start out looking different from how they look when they mature.
Change is as natural as nature gets! Tadpoles become frogs and caterpillars become butterflies. And with some scissors and crayons, we turned paper into butterflies! Is that part of the life cycle of trees?
In class we brought animals through their life cycles using paper, cotton balls, pipe cleaners and play dough!
