Springtime

EYFS, KS1; Early Years, First Stage.
Ages 3 - 7

DURATION: 45 mins - 55 mins

OVERVIEW: A special look at life cycles for younger children! We demonstrate how our special ZooLab animals deal with the changing of the seasons and what happens in springtime.

In turn, we look at how each animal reproduces and prepares for the season ahead. Where possible, our presenters will try and bring you examples of eggs and baby animals.

A great way to entertain and educate children at a special time of year!

LIFECYCLE.jpg

What is a lifecycle?

A life cycle shows the different stages of development for a living thing! From the
moment we’re born to the moment we die,
we are in a life cycle. From infancy, every living thing on earth grows, slowly going through stages before reaching adulthood and eventually dying. It’s this journey we call a life cycle.

Spring is an important session in an animal’s lifecycle. Animals reawaken from hibernation, days are longer and food supply is in abundance.

The mating season begins. In the wild, it’s also baby season; many seasonal breeders reproduce during the spring to optimise survival for the next generation.
