Notes about device access in the classroom:

Students have parent provided ipads with apple id’s that are linked to school emails which allow for teachers/ IT to push apps onto the students ipads.
IT have restrictions set onto the network provider as to ensure students aren’t accessing inappropriate/ irrelevant content will on school premises.

- What do you think they will look like?
- What do you think mealworms need to grow ( Container of

- What changes do you think the mealworm will
go through ?

Explain to the students that, over the course of a few

weeks, the class will be watching the mealworms and
how they change over time. They will also be learning
about other animals and how they change and grow.
Students will be creating a video that illustrates what
they think the mealworms will turn into. They will also
draw how people change as they grow up.
