My students need butterfly kits to raise caterpillars into butterflies in the classroom.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students come from multiple ethnic groups. Most are economically disadvantaged. Despite the economic plight of our children, our school has flourished! Our school is high performing, with results rivaling schools in much higher economic areas. The teachers have high expectations and the students are meeting them!
These kids love to learn!
They are passionate and excited about anything new that they are presented with. Pre-kindergarten students have had limited experiences which makes their learning so palpable. Their passion fuels me daily!
Using butterfly growing kits with the prekindergarten students at my school will allow the students to be able to observe the ladybug life cycle to see caterpillars become butterflies! We will journal our observations as our insects change. Life cycles and metamorphosis are new concepts to most children; having the opportunity to witness these changes in real life will give them a clear understanding of the changes that living organisms go through.
By providing these live insect kits to our classrooms, the students will get to see, up close how life cycles work.
The experience of raising the insects will create a life long memory!
