Plants grow and reproduce.

Look at the pictures of these fruits. Does these fruits have seeds. If the fruits have seeds, what can you do with the seeds? Do you eat the seeds? Why do plants have seeds?


Before a plant produces fruit it will produce flowers. The flowers will develop into fruits and seeds. The seed can be planted to produce a new plant.


Animals grow 2 (Butterfly)

Butterflies too go through various stages of development. Just like the tadpole a butterfly begins its life in an egg. When the egg hatches a little caterpillar will hatch. The caterpillar will grow until it reaches the pupa stage. After a week the butterfly will come out from the pupa.

Look at the video clip below and observe the life cycle of a butterfly.



Question: In what way is the baby butterfly (caterpillar) different from the butterfly?

Animals grow 1 (FROG)

Look at the pictures above. These are the pictures of the same person. Is the picture different. If it is different, why is it different? How can the same person be different? Think about it.

As a person grows. The individual will experience changes in the length of the hands, feet and their body size. Other than that their faces will also change, but it will always be the same person from childhood to adulthood.

The Food Pyramid.

Whatever we eat everyday, we must make sure that the food is suitable for our bodies. That is why we have the food pyramid to guide us in what we can eat more and what we must eat less. It is important that we eat healthy food so that we will be healthy and strong.
