How to make this oak tree life cycle printable
Start by printing out all the free printables, found below.
Cut out both wheels and place the cover wheel over the top of the other one.
Using a brad or other type of holder, fasten it through both of the wheels and clip to hold on the back.
And literally, that’s it!
Once you’re done you can talk about the different life cycles with your child as they spin the wheel.
Additionally, children can cut the various words of the oak tree life cycle and paste them in the correct order of the worksheet.
Another great way to make certain that they’re understanding the process is to have them place the correct words in the life cycle themselves.
As you can see in the picture below, the words were cut out and then my child placed them in the correct part of the life cycle process.
