This science-integrated lesson serves as a year-end culmination for students in first grade.   Students play characters going through a transformation.  Each story presents an opportunity to discuss and act out life cycles.  This lesson recommends two stories: The Ugly Duckling and The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein.   The first grade objectives addressed are using C.I.T.I. skills and communicating a story with body/voice.  This lesson is the culmination of our recommended sequence in the First Grade Curriculum and can also be used for Kindergarten.
