This unit is designed to teach children about the life cycles and classification of different animals: mammals, insects, reptiles, amphibians, birds, and fish. It also includes lesson plans aligned with kindergarten common core standards. A good book to use with this unit is "Scholastic Discover: See Me Grow".
