Who Turned the Lights Out?

Students discover the life cycle of butterfly by observing its growth from egg to caterpillar and the formation of its chrysalis. Students conduct an experiment in which they design housing for the chrysalises which are either in full light or complete darkness. Students collect data on the two groups of chrysalises until butterflies are released and prepare graphs and reports on the results of the experiment.

As a first year teacher, Lesson Planet is a precious lifeline! I am able to gather ideas and build on the ideas of veteran teachers. Lesson Planet is a huge time saver, especially for a first year teacher who is trying very diligently not to become overwhelmed!
