Kinder / Preschool / ELC Lesson Plan – Lesson Plan on Animal Lifecycles (Montessori Australia), Montessori philosophy

We currently have this lesson plan on Animal Lifecycles in Australia on our waitlist to be built. Join our waitlist for this Montessori 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 lays the foundation for future science learning. To create a preschool learning environment that teaches animal lifecycles, educators could set up a nature table with specimens of different animals at various stages of their lifecycle. They could also incorporate books, puzzles, and games that focus on animal lifecycles. Additionally, outdoor exploration and observation of local wildlife could be encouraged. Potential preschool lesson plan ideas could include reading books about animal lifecycles, such as “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” by Eric Carle, and then having students create their own lifecycle diagrams or crafts. Another idea could be to take a field trip to a local farm or zoo to observe animals in different stages of their lifecycle and discuss what they have learned. Overall, incorporating animal lifecycles into the preschool curriculum can help foster a love of nature and science in young children
