My students need materials for exploring life cycles. We will use an incubator to watch the twenty-one day process of egg to chick.
My students all have big eyes that glisten in the light. They live in an extremely poor neighborhood and it does not faze them. My students cry when it is time for vacation. They stay behind when the day is over. I often find one or two hiding in the coat closet. They want to be in school.They are starving for more knowledge, more safety, and more consistency. They feel safe in our school. They feel safe with their teachers.
As their teacher, I am a conduit of knowledge, order, and respect.
I have a big responsibility to bring the world to them and hold their attention within our room.
The second grade students need materials for their life cycle unit. We are hoping to be able to watch the twenty-one day process of an embryo to a chick.
In this unit we will look at the life cycle of a chicken, a frog, a butterfly and a turtle.
Students will be able to compare and discuss these life cycles using Socratic dialogue. The posters will be used for reference. The incubator will be used to demonstrate the process of how a chicken comes to be. The project will begin with asking the famous question of what came first the chicken or the egg? We will then go step by step to nurture this egg into a chick. We will then look at the life cycle of a butterfly and answer the question what came first the egg or the butterfly?
This project will be fun and inspire thinking and questioning.
