Everyday Teaching: Science

Here is my ABSOLUTE favorite science unit to teach: Life Cycle of a Butterfly.  This is truly amazing to teach in a classroom- most of my students knew that a caterpillar changed into a butterfly, but they never saw how it did...until this science unit.  Little caterpillars arrive and the magic begins!  My students always loved watching them grow and fatten up, go into J-shape, molt into chrysalis, and finally come out as a butterfly!  Here is my SMARTBoard file for the entire unit!

My son's daycare (my son in blue shirt) had caterpillars too a couple of years ago...his excitement (x24) is the excitement I always saw in my classroom!
