10 Ready-to-Go Resources for Teaching Life Cycles Life cycles are one of the great science concepts taught somewhere in every school's science curriculum. In my school, we look at the life cycles of plants and crayfish in my third grade class, while other grades study the life cycles of chickens, butterflies, and fish. I have been teaching about the plants and crayfish for over a decade now, and I am always looking for new and creative ways to engage my students without having to reinvent the wheel. This week I'm sharing with you some of my favorite resources to teach life cycles.
Safe Image Search We have partnered with KidzSearch to deliver safe images from a variety of safe and fun family websites, many of which are educational in nature. Not only are all images properly filtered using safe search, the nature of the websites associated with image results are also screened to prevent users from landing on a site that may contain harmful content – even if the image that brought them to the site is innocent. The image search results on KidzSearch provide safe content designed specifically for kids. What makes these results unique is that they are all filtered using multiple layers of screening. At the top layer is a keyword checker that makes sure the search term is safe enough to proceed further.

Animal Life Cycles by StudyJams WatchKnowLearn ratings are intentionally harsher than what you might find on YouTube, for example. Most of our videos have been imported by people who want to use them with kids, not by the creators of the videos. We take a hard-nosed attitude toward quality. Four and five stars should be reserved for really excellent quality. Three stars isn't bad.
