My students need books on insects, bug puppets, and life cycles to experience the world around them.
My students are eager to learn and do hands-on activities. They learn using their five senses. They enjoy being read books in Spanish as well as English. They are very excited in learning about insects.
My students are very active, curious, and love to learn about the world.
I work in a Head Start program in the Windy City where 95% of the children speak Spanish and learning English as their second language. Most of the children come from working parents and have limited opportunities to experience the world around them.
My students are very active and curious I want to continue nurturing their love for science by providing opportunities to experience things by doing hands-on, like learning and seeing how a ladybug develops through the four stages of development and other insects.
With this project the children will learn more about insects through books and hands-on projects.
They will observe how a lady bug grows from an egg to a larva and a ladybug. Also, by being read they will learn new vocabulary words, ask, answer questions and make predictions based on the reading.
When the children have the opportunity to see nature close they are learning that insects have certain qualities that make them exciting to see and touch. They will also learn that insect’s homes are very different from ours. Their compassion and empathy will grow even more.
