Hooray! This project is fully funded
I am so excited to be in 1st grade this year ! Each of my students comes from a very low socioeconomic background and does not have access to basic supplies. I supply all their basic school essentials, including pencils. Our school has 100% of students receiving free breakfast and lunch. We have the highest rate of ELL's in the state and have a high amount of special education students.
With all of these facts against each one of them, it doesn't stop any of my students from coming in each school day ready and eager to learn!
Watching a caterpillar turning into a butterfly is amazing! I want each of our grade 1 students to be able to watch this occur. Our science curriculum is very limited, so we create our own experiments and hands on activities for our students to experience. We study caterpillars and how they change into a butterfly, but wouldn't it be more beneficial for each boy and girl to see it happen? They are little sponges and want to absorb all the knowledge we can teach them, this is an experience they won't forget! We will watch the caterpillars in the cup change and shed it's skin. When they are ready we will (each 1st grade class) move them into their butterfly net. As a grade level, we will go outside and set them free! Grade one will benefit from this project because they will now be able to describe in detail how a caterpillar turns into a butterfly. They will have the real experience to incorporate into their learning. The excitement on their faces will be amazing!
