Our spring science unit is on life cycles so this project fit in beautifully. I introduced the ladybug unit by showing a PowerPoint presentation on our interactive whiteboard. In the presentation I told the children what they needed to learn. Please click here to read all about our project. Below are a few examples of some projects.

egg, pupa and ladybug model

Just a few of the models that were made, these show an egg, a pupa and the ladybug.

The children combined drawings, pictures from the internet and their own writing for the poster.

photo student puppet show

In the background you can see eggs on a leaf and a pupa hanging near the top of the scene. Both puppet shows depicted the life cycle of the ladybug.
