Animals come in all shapes, sizes, and colors and all of these can change depending on their life cycle stage. Through engaging activities and exploration, students will think like researchers and investigate the unique life cycles of plants and animals at Georgia Aquarium. Students will also analyze how the life cycles of our organisms compare to the human cycle. With further onsite investigation, students can demonstrate their knowledge by properly sequencing the life stages of various plants and animals.
Georgia Standards of Excellence:
- S2L1. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about the life cycles of different living organisms.
- a. Ask questions to determine the sequence of the life cycle of common animals in your area: a mammal such as a cat, dog or classroom pet, a bird such as a chicken, an amphibian such as a frog, and an insect such as a butterfly.
Next Generation Science Standards:
- 2-LS4-1 Make observations of plants and animals to compare the diversity of life in different habitats.
