Growing Butterfly Habitat

My students need an arbor for our butterfly garden, along with a planter and hose so our plants can flourish as we study nature.

My Students

I teach at a high poverty school in south Florida. The children at my school have a very high rate of free lunch and breakfast. My school services students from Pre-K through grade five and is located in a small neighborhood close to many major universities and colleges.

The students in my class come from very diverse backgrounds, with a high population of students who do not speak English as their first language.

The children in my class enjoy learning about the world around them and are very curious about science.

My Project

The butterfly garden is interactive and allows my students to expand their understanding of plant and animal relationships beyond the classroom. My students are learning about the life cycle of native butterflies and the importance of conservation through hands on experiences.

As we expand our butterfly garden using the arbor and planter my students will continue their first hand learning and appreciation of nature.

Not only will my students work in the garden using these materials but they will continue to appreciate nature and reflect on their hard work. These materials will help create a community habitat that students can take pride in.
