Butterfly Life Cycle

Help me give my students life cycle kits to experience at home with their families.

My Students

Students are lacking all the hands-on activities they are use to doing in class. The students have very limited resources and these opportunities to provide the resources would be very helpful. Thank you for helping the students experience these lessons.

My Project

These materials will allow the students to experience the butterfly life cycle at home with their families. This is something that students usually experience in the classroom but weren't able to do it this year because of the school closures. It is something that not only will allow them to learn while watching it happen but it will also help prepare them for next year's curriculum. Your help with this project will be greatly appreciated and it would make a huge difference in the student's lives. They will see this as just having fun but will be learning at the same time.
