Project #15

For my project based lesson plan I wanted my class to learn about the life of butterflies. It is for a first grade class. They will get to watch a caterpillar transform to a butterfly and learn about all different types of butterflies. Each group will present a Prezi presentation about the stage of life they were assigned. The presentation part will last only one week, but the entire project is 28 days. It lasts so long because this class will get to actually watch the butterflies transform!! Throughout the whole 28 days the students will be blogging about changes. At the end we will release the butterflies outside! Also, the class will get to watch the time lapse video we make of our project.

  1. Caitlyn,

    I absolutely love your project plan for the life cycle of a butterfly! I especially like the part where the students get to release the butterflies at the end of the 28 days. This gives the first graders some extra motivation. This is something I will definitely keep in mind for a future lesson plan!
