The human life cycle
AF1, AF2, AF3
The class discussed changes in living things, considering the changes that they themselves had been through. They provided ideas about how they had grown from being babies; the first things they could remember; growing up and having children themselves, and about growing old.
The life cycle of frogs was provided as an example of a visual representation of changes and to illustrate repetition of events in one generation after another.
The pupils were then asked to draw and label a human life cycle, based on the discussions.
The labels are ‘pouch’ and ‘baby’.
Finding out information about other life cycles using simple texts and electronic media, illustrating the information graphically with annotations.
Luke can use the concept of a cycle correctly to generate a model of a biological process, and he can relate this to his own existence and experience. He presents his ideas in an appropriate format, albeit with only a little labelling.
