Year 2 Science:
Living things grow, change and have offspring similar to themselves.
- representing personal growth and changes from birth
- recognising that living things have predictable characteristics at different stages of development
- exploring different characteristics of life stages in animals such as egg, caterpillar and butterfly
- observing that all animals have offspring, usually with two parents

|Identify the strengths of this teaching resource
The UI is visually appealing to students. I found it relatively easy to navigate and to find relevant materials.
|Identify any weaknesses of this teaching resource
Not being able to ‘pin’ a webpage that does not contain an image, was a disadvantage of Pinterest. I was unable to collect valuable sources relevant to the topic.
