What is My Baby Called? Foldable Activity

This foldable teaches students about animal life cycles.

Print out the high resolution version of the front and back of the foldable. Copy them two sided. Help students follow the directions in the template (at bottom) to create their foldable.

We've included both a black and white and color version. The black and white version can easily be copied for classroom use and students can color them as well. If you have access to color copying, the color version is a good teaching tool.

We recommend using a thicker paper for copying the activity (65-pound to cover stock will make them more durable).
