My students need the butterfly nursery to see and experience first hands how caterpillars changes into butterflies.
My students are classified as special education students. They are classified with different disabilities, most prominent speech and language difficulty. My school receives students from the homeless shelter. The school also provide uniforms, food, and various other supplies to the students are housed in homeless shelters. My school's population is made up of 47% English Language Learners.
My students are low-level readers but have a great passion for books, a passion for learning, and they try really hard despite their disability.
The students in my class come from all cultures, such as Ghana, Puerto Rico, and American. My students smile every day and are eager learn new things. They like to use the fine Motor skills to create and construct things.
Despite my student's disabilities, I push them hard to come close to grade level in the content area. I always tell my students, a disability is a condition, it doesn't define who you are. So, with that being said, I have high expectations for my students.
The materials of the live butterfly life cycle nursery will allow my students to observe butterflies changing, and the materials will give my students an up close and personal experience within the classroom.
My students will be able to observe one organism over time and compare its early development (caterpillar) to its later development (butterfly).
A fundamental observation skill in science is comparing and contrasting.
Through the actual hands-on and in-classroom experience, students will be studying the life cycle of a butterfly while noting the development as it metamorphoses from caterpillar to a butterfly.
In this lesson, my students will keep a butterfly journal of observations and activities. Depending on their individual skill levels, students can use words, pictures, or illustrations to record their observations. That way each learning style is met in this hand on and observation experience.
This project will inspire my students to learn about the life cycle of a butterfly and to be able to identify the different stages a butterfly goes through up close and personal right in their very own classroom.
