Our student population has a large percentage of children from low income families. (51% or more on free or reduced lunch) They miss many opportunities because of this fact. This spring I would like to show them the life cycle of the butterfly. In our school, this has never been a hands on unit for our early childhood students. I would like to order the larvae and let the students watch the life cycle before their eyes. Then, we could release them into the warm spring air. We plant a large number of flower bulbs in the fall and the reaction of the butterflies to the flowers will also be an added pleasure for the children to observe.
