class enjoyed learning about butterflies. We used many different
ways to learn about the life cycle of a butterfly. Students
watched a video of a story on United Streaming on computers in
the classroom, drew connection pictures of the story, made
murals and editable butterfly snacks.
collaborated with the 3rd grade classrooms to watch as their
butterflies emerged. The 5th graders were in the process of
creating a butterfly garden and we loved going outside to see
also coincided with the family literacy night about nature.
Parents and students were able to come to school at night and
learn about making a butterfly garden. (some of our projects
were used for decorations for family night!)
I heard from
several parents that were planning on extending this project to
home over the summer by planting a butterfly garden with their
child. Please watch our power
point to see some of our projects in action!
