My students need a butterfly habitat, a butterfly life cycle specimen set and a ladybug habitat explore the life cycle of insects in our world.
As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
My students are creative, clever and very spontaneous.
They like to move, they love to listen to stories, and they love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in broken households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical."
From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives; however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I hope to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.
Having a butterfly habitat and ladybug habitat will help my students see how these insects transform from caterpillars into butterflies and from larvae into ladybugs. Bringing larvae into the classroom will allow them to have a real life experience with these creatures we find near us in nature. This will expand their knowledge and understanding of continuous change found in these amazing creatures. I want them to be able to observe and record and discuss the discoveries they see each day.
Having two habitats will allow students to observe the changes they see in two different amazing creatures we find in our local nature.
This is a great way for little learners to observe the life cycle of two different insects. Hands-on activities are the best way for young students to learn and understand the world around them. Our three- and four-year-old students will be amazed with the changes they will see right in front of them.
