My students need a creative way to get an EYE on INSECTS. The butterfly and praying mantis kits while allow the students to observe and compare complete and incomplete metamorphosis.
My classroom community is ever changing and I am committed to help my students learn about the world through hands on experiments and observations. My class consists of 7 and 8 year old girls and boys with a thirst for knowledge about the natural world they live in.
Our class is filled with ELL and ESE students as well as students with various needs that love to explore and learn.
The students have a need to learn more about the natural world they live in. By raising questions and observations the students will become independent, self-directed learners.
The butterfly and praying mantis kits will enhance the students EYE on INSECTS by providing a way for students to raise questions about the natural world, investigate through free exploration and observation and generate explanations.
These kits will enhance the students EYE on INSECTS by providing observable insect life cycles showing complete and incomplete metamorphosis.
The students will use these kits to observe, journal and compare the different stages of the life cycles of these insects. The students will also be able to observe the behaviors of the butterfly and praying mantis in each stage of their life cycle. The students will further research an insect of their choice and write an informational book about the insect. The students will also have a choice of creating a model, diaroma, game, song, PowerPoint presentation, etc. about their insect.
