How is your life like an alligator's life? RESOURCES
This week, we will explor animal life cycles by thinking about our birthday buddies—all the animals born on the exact same day we were born. We will compare the life stories of different animals and discover that although animal lives can be very different, all kinds of animals are born, grow, have babies, and eventually die.
You can help your child stay curious about the life cycle by noticing how living creatures around you change over time. Look at old pictures of your child, friends, or family, and notice how they’ve grown. Watch a live stream video of baby animals (like this one: https://explore.org/livecams/currently-live/) and discuss what’s different and the same about growing up as a human, bird, puppy, or other animal. Have fun!
