We currently have this lesson plan on Animal Lifecycles in New Zealand on our waitlist to be built. Join our waitlist for this Froebel plan (link in navigation).

Understanding animal lifecycles is important for preschoolers as it helps them develop an appreciation for the natural world and the interconnectedness of living things. It also provides a foundation for future science learning. To create a preschool learning environment that teaches animal lifecycles, teachers could incorporate a variety of materials such as books, posters, and models of different animals at different stages of their lifecycle. They could also create sensory bins with materials such as sand, rocks, and plastic animals to allow children to explore and learn through play. Potential preschool lesson plan ideas could include reading books about different animal lifecycles, watching videos or documentaries, and going on nature walks to observe animals in their natural habitats. Teachers could also incorporate art activities such as drawing or painting different stages of an animal’s lifecycle, or creating a collage of different animals and their lifecycles. Additionally, teachers could plan hands-on activities such as hatching eggs or observing tadpoles as they transform into frogs
