Year 2 – Life cycle of a honey bee sequencing cards

This free resource is a set of sequencing cards, to help children understand and explain the life cycle of a honey bee. The cards include clear diagrams and information about each stage in the cycle. They are perfect for teaching children how animals have offspring that grow into adults, which is part of the national curriculum for Year 2.

Ask the children to order the cards correctly and explain each stage. Or, challenge them further by cutting up the information and picture cards separately. Ask the children to match the information and picture cards, then order them.  

There’s also a lovely video available on The Hub, which reveals the correct order of the honey bee’s life cycle.

Download a PDF version of the sequencing cards.
