Science Year 5 - 6 week unit on Life cycles of plants and animals, linked with Amazon Rainforest
6 week unit of work linked to curriculum theme - Amazon Rainforest.

National Curriculum 2014 links
By the end of the unit, pupils should be able to describe the differences in the life cycles of a mammal, an amphibian, an insect and a bird and to describe the life process of reproduction in some plants and animals.

The flipchart includes links to all videos by clicking on the images. The worksheets and activities are stored in the flipchart so clicking on the images will open the files. I have also added them as files in the download.

To know about animal life cycles
To research Amazon wildlife life cycles
To be able to plan a fair germination investigation
