Goal

To extend learning in our thematic units regarding insects, amphibians, life sciences, and horticulture. 

 

What will be done with my students

We would be in with the insects (caterpillars) as soon as they are available as that module begins soon. We have two habitats that have been donated to us, so we would like to obtain the caterpillars and their food. We have already begun our Florida friendly butterfly garden by pruning and moving our small garden from last year to a lar er space. Parents, teachers and families will be coming to our school on Saturday, September 18, to begin preparing our new larger PreK garden and outdoor classroom area. We would like to complete our garden with vegetables and fruits and obtain tadpole e gs for our spring amphibian module. 

 

Benefits to my students

In addition, to understand how animals and plants grow, expand students vocabulary expressive language, cooperative learning, adaptive skills (tending the garden) and sensory learning experiences our students would not likely have outside of school. Outcomes will be measured in cooperation and communication between students, number of expressive words and new vocabulary used by students, and their demonstration of understanding of life cycles of animals and plants.
