Children love learning about different animals, birds and insects. Many find it very fascinating, and it is a great educational time as well, especially if you live on a property and raise your own animals. Creating a unit study on different animals is a great way for children to learn about animal life cycles, while improving their math and literacy skills. Here are 16 free animal life cycle printables you could add to your homeschool or include in one of your unit studies.
