Up Close Butterfly Lesson at Great Neck Road

Child with butterfly thumbnail246425
Third graders in Ms. Mullins’ class at Great Neck Road Elementary School recently had a hands-on science learning experience. The students have been raising painted lady butterflies in their classroom. The caterpillars arrived as tiny larva, and the students observed them making their chrysalis and finally emerging as adult butterflies. The students made daily observations and recorded their data in their science journals. As a culminating activity, Ms. Mullins invited them into a tent where the butterflies could fly around, and the students could observe them up close. Their final project will be a Google slides presentation recording their entire butterfly experience.
