Because the Life Cycle Wheel is a multi-step project, it may be too difficult or too time-consuming for students who:

  • have fine motor difficulty
  • have ADHD
  • have difficulty following multi-step directions
  • are English Language Learners

In order to modify the project, decrease the number of steps required to complete the activity. Have samples already prepared or offer one-to-one support. Further modification includes simplifying the reading content by having students read one of the simplified versions of the Tadpole to Frog books and/or have students watch the Life Cycle of a Frog Video. In addition, offer the Modified Life Cycle Wheel Worksheet to decrease the writing demands on the student.
