Perna-Rose Foundation fo Hope - $171.68

 

Goal

To engage students in science while teaching them about the life cycle of a butterfly by watching a caterpillar go through all the stages to become a butterfly.  

 

What will be done with my students

Students will get caterpillars and watch for two weeks as the caterpillars grow, form a chrysalis, and then come out as butterflies. During these two weeks classrooms will be focusing on reading about caterpillars and butterflies, learning about each stage of the life cycle and those life cycles of other animals. Students will participate in projects that have to do with the butterfly life cycle as well. Students in every classroom in 2nd grade will get to observe the caterpillars every day and note each change in their science notebooks.  

 

Benefits to my students

This allows them a hands-on look at the life cycle of the butterfly instead of just reading about it. Each classroom will get 5 caterpillars to observe each day. This will allow students to develop their skills of observation and data collection.  

 

Budget Narrative

9 sets of 5 caterpillars with caterpillar food plus shipping. (This allows for 1 set of 5 caterpillars for each 2nd grade classroom plus 1 extra in case some die off)
