Module 1: Life Cycles
From the Charles Darwin Trust, these materials help children to understand about life cycles, food chains, interdependence and adaptation. Children look at the growth of cabbages and the life cycles of two insects, the cabbage white butterfly and the Ichneumon wasp. Children see how these life cycles are interconnected. The activities help children to: * Make the connection between gardening, where the selection of seeds can change the characteristics of crops, and the processes of natural selection. * Recognise that a garden can be a laboratory in which to discover the interdependence of plants and animals. * Present illustrations of interdependent life cycles to explain the processes central to the struggle for survival. * Consider feeding relationships and food chains.
