This activity was designed for blind learners, but all types of learners can use it to learn about the life cycle of plabts. The five activities included in this lesson plan provide students with evidence that all living things grow and change as they progress through their life cycle. All of the activities detailed in this lesson plan can be done with students who are visually impaired, if teachers adapt them using Resources for Teaching and Adapting Lessons for Students with Visual Impairments. Tactile models and braille materials will be key and all of the activities will require more time for repeated tactical exploration and expression.
