An innovative way to teach the stages of the life cycle in an online learning space!
This resource was created to assist students in learning about the stages of the life cycle. It includes 2 PowerPoint presentations and a 4-page pdf for students to complete online.
PowerPoint 1: STAGES IN THE LIFE CYCLE includes 13 slides with information read to students that they may simply click to listen to. It contains aspects of recommended dietary intake and nutrient reference value tables for each stage in the lifecycle.
PowerPoint 2: HOW TO COMPLETE QUESTIONS includes 5 slides and a video showing students how to fill out the pdf using Adobe Acrobat. It contains 4 screenshots of the pdf and is narrated to explain how to complete each question. Students can simply click to listen.
This is a diverse resource that can be used to meet a series of outcomes and dot points from a variety of NSW syllabi and the Australian Curriculum. Students can go through the PowerPoint at their own pace and then complete the questions and activities in the pdf worksheet. This resource was created to be used digitally or physically depending on the needs and abilities of students. This is to be decided by the teacher and differentiated for students at the teacher’s discretion.
- 1 x Stages of the Life Cycle PowerPoint presentation narrated for students to listen to or read at their own pace.
- 1 x How to complete questions PowerPoint presentation narrated to explain each question.
- 1 x 4-page pdf Student Worksheet
