This begins with reminding the children how they learned about the family of insects, like fireflies. Ask them what makes them special, especially why glow at nighttime. However, today they are going to learn about another family of insects (bloom knowledge). They are going to learn about butterflies, and how they change from standard crawling bugs, then into bugs having wings. While explaining to them that butterflies are just insects which come in various shapes, sizes, or colors, ask them what color they have observed from butterflies.
Display the full picture of butterfly life cycles on the white paper and give an explanation that they are going to learn about the cycles, then draw and label the lifecycles. Then sing a couple of times, using the words egg, caterpillar, cocoon, and butterfly.
Then review the conception of a caterpillar changing into a butterfly, by telling the children that the caterpillar eats and then grows and mature. Then ask them what happens after that (blooms Knowledge) (Saracho & Spodek, 2008).
Have students demonstrate the hatching of the egg before a caterpillar releases itself by curling up like a ball, before slowly emerging from the ball and broadening its wings (Gardner, Bodily plus Kinesthetic skill) (Saracho & Spodek, 2008).
Explain various big words like metamorphosis, caterpillar, cocoon, and migration. Inform the learners that the words will be posted on the chalkboard, and anyone of them should volunteer, while the rest should apply them in their writings. ...Show more
