Life Cycles

Traveling Programs are temporarily unavailable. Out of an abundance of caution and in accordance with public health guidance, the Museum will not be offering Traveling Programs for the remainder of calendar year 2020. The Museum will make a decision about Traveling Programs reservations for January – June 2021 later this calendar year. The Museum of Science is committed to supporting students and educators. Resources can be found at MOS at Home. More to come soon!

Available to Schools Only

In this presentation, students learn how living things grow, change, and reproduce. We bring three different living things that showcase a variety of life cycles found in the living world. Through the use of observations and media resources, students compare life cycles involving egg development, live birth, metamorphosis, and plant development in different species. Students demonstrate the process of metamorphosis using a transforming costume and have the opportunity to explore life cycles further by engaging with touchable materials and activities at exploration tables
