Montessori-Inspired Ladybug Life Cycle 3-Part Cards


I was going through all my 3-part matching cards for Safari Ltd products and realized that I hadn't done all the life cycle sets yet.  Since it's springtime and many homeschoolers are studying birds and bugs now, I decided I'd better get busy getting all the life cycle sets done.  We're still covered in snow, but these bright pictures of green leaves and red ladybugs are lifting my spirits.





We like to use the life cycle set in sensory bins, alongside the cards.  Kids can use the printables for simple matching activities in the traditional Montessori 3-part cards method (explained here) or can combine them with a moveable alphabet for a spelling practice.

It's also fun to get out all your Safari Ltd life cycle sets and set them up so each stage of the insect life cycle matches each other (scroll down for more matching cards), all the eggs together, all the larvae, etc.  It's a great chance to explore the similarities between all insects and compare them to non-insects bugs like spiders and worms.
