I put up a display just after Easter about life cycles. I'm on my final block placement in a year 5 class and so far the display is about the life cycle of a caterpillar and frog (explaining the stages and there are photographs to illustrate) and I've got a plant section as well. So far, we've only covered animal life cycles. Tomorrow in art, I want the children to make something small for the display. I bought some foam sheets today, some aluminium paper and some tissue paper. The obvious answer is probably to make small ladybirds etc but there are a selection of colours and I don't want a mad scramble and everyone wanting to do the same thing. They know a lot more about animal life cycles now so it would be nice for them to have a chance to show it somehow. There isn't too much room on the display but if they make something small each, there would be room. Can anyone suggest what I should ask them to do please? I want to ask them something specific so that they're not all doing e.g. a ladybird. I just want them to have some input and for them to gain as much as possible from it but I don't think I'm good at coming up with ideas for things to make. Hope to hear your suggestions soon. I need more ideas before tomorrow.
