Fluttering with Excitement

Help me give my students the experience of investigating the life cycle of butterflies. Our second grade classrooms are exploring life cycles of animals, and what better way then exploring and seeing it for themselves.

My Students

My students are inquisitive and love to wonder about the world. In our second grade classrooms, our own love and excitement to teach as teachers shows in our students drive to learn. We explore our learning through the inquiry process and focus on hands-on activities and connections made through our lessons. We work together as a team to make sure every child experiences the same enriching activities. This is why this project is for all our second graders. The greatest reward in teaching is watching a child's excitement build and their drive to learn more.

My Project

We want our students to explore the life cycle of butterflies. By seeing first hand an egg hatching and caterpillars exploring their habitat, students will question and investigate with wonder and excitement.

The opportunity to see this life stage up close and personal will become a wonderful memory and an enriching science investigation.

They will be able to see hands-on the different stages and how they interconnect with one another. Through this investigation, students will find how they connect to such a small creature and also learn how to respect and care for the environment they are all interconnected to.
