Pre-K Learns About The Life Cycle Of A Butterfly

My students need two butterfly nurseries and caterpillars to learn about the life cycle of a butterfly.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

How great would it be for children to get to watch and learn about the life cycle of a butterfly?

I teach Pre-K to eighteen wonderful children.

I try my best to get the children all the supplies they need to enhance our curriculum. Most of these children come from low income families and do not get the opportunity to do hands on activities at home. It is essential that children of this age learn through many different strategies.

My Project

You will help the children get to see five caterpillars transform in a nursery into butterflies. The children will be able to watch and explain the growth of a caterpillar and learn about the life cycle of a butterfly. They will keep weekly logs and draw the growth each week. They will take care of the caterpillars and butterflies by feeding them. We will read many poems, songs and read lots of books pertaining to the life cycle of a butterfly. At the end, they will be able to release them outside.

Wouldn't it be great to have children watch and learn about the life cycle of a butterfly in our classroom?

You will make that possible for the children to get 5 caterpillars and watch them transform into a butterfly in a butterfly nursery. Thank you for taking the time to read my proposal.
