I worked really hard to make this end of the year book fun and a learning tool. I love to integrate fun! There are several options to choose from (over 25 pages) that let your students draw their response or write and draw about their response. I've even added three special pages that add a fingerprint craft, a butterfly footprint craft, and a hand print. These will be great keepsakes.

 Check out how these turned out. I really wanted to add the fingerprints and I thought the butterfly footprint craft and the ant fingerprint craft worked well.


This packet even meets the following Common Core Standards:

K.RL.2

Frog Life Cycle Craft Chicken Life Cycle Craft Butterfly Life Cycle Craft Oh My!

Spring Activities Craft -- This spring craft is a unique way to display and teach your students about the chicken life cycle, butterfly life cycle, and frog life cycle and their habitats including the countryside, the farm, and the pond. Tie in the wind for the wind sock and you have a great science activity for spring.

life cycle crafts

Students will create three life cycle wind socks (just add streamers) or a life cycle lantern during your next life cycle science lesson or habitat science lesson. There are additional labels you can add that include the terms for the life cycles. These work well for science centers too or for a science or spring bulletin board.

life cycle activities


These are easy to make! Print out the black and white versions and your students color or paint (watercolors work well) the life cycles. The life cycles show four stages for the butterfly, chicken, and frog. The stages used are as follows.

The butterfly life cycle includes the butterfly, eggs, chrysalis, and caterpillar. The background shows the countryside.
