Hooray! This project is fully funded
Take a moment to think about your kindergarten experience. Did you just get a feeling of nostalgia, too? Kindergarten was an amazing and fun time that taught you the foundations of reading, writing, and math. My students are getting that same experience, but they are in need of materials that will help them learn all about the life cycle of butterflies.
The children I teach are energetic, wonderful, hardworking students.
They impress me everyday with their awesome attitudes, and desire to learn. We are a full day kindergarten class at a Title I school. Most of our students qualify for the free breakfast and lunch program. The student population is 33% Caucasian, 26% Hispanic, 12% Asian, 11% African American, 28% other.
Our class loves to research just about anything! Now that Spring has sprung, we want to study the life cycle of butterflies. These majestic creatures are so unique. My students do not understand that these beautiful insects come from a small egg. That is why I want them to see the change from the beginnning to the end. Another great thing about this project is it will integrate the STEM curriculum into our daily routine. It is very difficult to incorporate science into our schedule. Studying butterflies will provide hands on investigating, and enough excitement to last my kindergarteners a life time!
