This resource produced by ARKive supports the teaching of life-cycles at Key Stage Two. It looks at mammals, amphibians, reptiles and plants and finds similarities between the life cycles of animals and plants within each group, as well as some of the similarities and differences between these groups. There is a focus on the green turtle, looking in detail at each stage in its life cycle and about the potential threats that the green turtle faces. Complementing this is a turtle life-cycle game where children begin as an ‘egg’ and progress to an ‘adult turtle’ as they play the game, which includes mathematical and green turtle questions. The activity aims to reinforce what children have learned from the presentation, whilst also improving mathematics and comprehension skills. Included in the resource are a presentation, all materials needed to play the turtle life cycle game and and teacher guidance including ideas for extension activities.
