STEM for Kindergarten
My students need hands on experiences with various insect kits, 2 butterfly habitat sets, and moth cocoons while learning about life cycles. They also need big books to help them understand more about science.
Students rarely have time to go outside and explore life cycles of insects. Helping them to see the changes daily and up close really makes learning about life cycle more personal to them.
My school has over 600 students with 5 sections of Kindergarten - 2 of them are Bilingual classrooms.
I teach a class of 22 Kindergarten students. Most are considered at risk and are minorities. They are very inquisitive, curious and love to explore when we have the materials to use during science lessons.
I have requested butterfly and moth eggs so my students will be able to see how butterflies and moths change and grow during their life cycles. They will be able to integrate with math by making a graph of the changes daily. I have requested big books to read about science concepts that are not hands on so they will be able to better understand that concept and use that big book as a reference for research.
This project is very important because having hands on experience with insects is a more relevant way to teach life cycles than just reading about them from a book.
Reading from a Big books ensures that all students are engaged and actively participating.
