Week One: Caterpillar and Butterfly Students will learn the life cycle of the butterfly in a live meet with the teacher. The teacher will present a slideshow lesson. A fun fine motor skills butterfly craft will also be demonstrated by the teacher and children can follow along. (note: this is a different slide show and different craft than in my Caterpillar to Butterfly class). Week Two: Honey Bees Students will learn how important bees are for pollination and how they make that...
Students will improve their understanding of the crawly creatures we call bugs. They will learn fun facts, interact with other students and the teacher while getting creative making their own craft that follows the bug theme of each week. We may have a Kahoot quiz at the end of some classes if time allows. Teacher will put up the quiz on a shared screen and we will all take the quiz together.
I love nature; bugs included! I love sharing my joy and creativity with children!
