Download this 22 slide ‘Acorn to Oak Tree’ PowerPoint to use in a science Life Processes and Living Things unit about Life Cycles.  The PowerPoint explains what an oak tree is, what acorns are (seeds), about acorn cupules and how acorns germinate, grow into seedlings and then saplings.   Find out more about how the oak tree grows more branches as it gets older, learn about catkins and fertilisation and how new acorns grow, ripen and are eaten by hungry squirrels in the autumn.  Children will enjoy seeing what happens to the oak tree during the four seasons and how, when it grows old, it is a home for many living things.  With clearly labelled pictures of each of the stages in the life cycle and a glossary, this is a great resource that KS1 or KS2 children will enjoy and will help them develop a greater understanding of trees and how they grow.
