For young students the minibeast box is a good option. If the class is stage 2 or 3 you could use the insects or frog boxes. The freshwater box also looks at life cycles.  If you are interested in mammals the echidna, platypus, possum and bats boxes all include information on lifecycles. Contact me on 02 9320 6197 if you want more information. Thanks Karen
