Beautiful Butterfly Metamorphosis

The cost of a DSM III Butterfiles and Moths kit from Delta Education is $437, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

I am a second-grade teacher who covers all subject areas for a lower-income second-grade class. My class has twenty-five curious and eager students. I am very disappointed this year because the funding for our "hands-on" science curriculum has ceased. I am desperate to be able to acquire the larvae of butterflies and a butterfly tower so that the students can observe metamorphosis as larvae become pupae and, eventually, butterflies. My students will be fascinated as they observe the metamorphosis of a butterfly. They will learn about metamorphosis, the larva, the pupa, and the whole life cycle. They will be able to have a once-in-a-lifetime memory of observing caterpillars throughout the life cycle of the butterfly. Thank you for helping them to have this opportunity.
