I currently work at an early childhood care center. We noticed that the children were interested in insects and bugs. They were always catching them on the playgroound and bringiing them to us asking if they could keep them. We explaind that bugs live outside and dont belong in the classroom. Thats when we started exploring differnt types of incest, where they live, what they look like, how/what they eat, etc. When we introduced the caterpillar we talked about it's life cycle and how it transforms into a butterfly. We read the very hungry caterpillar. Created a class poster with drawings of stages in the life cycle. The exciting part was that we got a butterfly garden for our room. everyday we watcheed them eat, grow, build a chrysalis, and hatch into butterflys affirming what we learneed about these incests. When theey were all hatched we let them go on the play grround as a class. It was so much fun and the students had fun learning about what they were interested in.
