The Life Cycle

My students need to learn about the life cycle by watching it.

My Students

My students live in a rural area. Our school is a kindergarten through 4th grade, Title I school, housing around 500 students. About 86% of the students are white, 13% are African American, and 1% are Hispanic. Over half of the students eat free or reduced rate lunch.

Giving my students books to read and hands on experiences increases their learning.

They enjoy learning about anything related to animals. Seeing the life cycle in action will make them want to learn more.

My Project

Students often learn from seeing and doing. These life cycle kits will help them do that. They will be able to watch caterpillars change to butterflies. They will watch ants build tunnels and navigate in the underground world.

They will expand on that learning using the books.

They will be able to read and see graphics explaining each stage. The books will be added to the library collection so all students will have access to it. The ladybugs, caterpillars, and ants will be displayed in the library. All the students will be able to see the changes take place right in front of their eyes!
