Life Cycles: To go on a life cycle hunt (if possible)

Aim: to observe life cycles in the local environment

Take children outside and look for evidence of different stages in plant and animal life cycles: flowers, seeds, seed dispersal, germination, eggs including insect eggs and frog spawn, caterpillars, chrysalises, tadpoles, young animals etc.  Children should take photographs and make notes.  They could collate the evidence on a map of the area in order to look at preferences, marking on the map the sunny spots, places where large structures provide shade or shelter, where there are trees etc.
