My Students

My students are so awesome! They come to school each day to be in a healthy and loving environment. Many of them face day to day challenges that impact their learning. Yet, they come to school each day eager to learn.

Many of my students live in apartment and don't get to explore some of natures true beauty just outside their doors.

Teaching at a Title 1 school where most of my students receive free and reduce lunch, they are not able to take trips to gardens or farm areas that give them the opportunity to explore the beauty of nature.

My Project

The materials in the project will make a difference in my students' learning because the Painted Lady Life Cycle Biokit provides enough material for my class of 32 students to have a hands-on experience learning about the butterfly life cycle and creates a learning space for students.

This project will have a great impact on my students as it will allow them to not only learn about the butterfly life cycle but it will also give them the opportunity to identify and understand the different stages of the life cycle in-depth.

This project will leave my students extremely knowledgeable about how butterfly larva becomes butterflies.
