Theme of the Month: Butterflies

This month as part of our exploring the nature outside the class( in our playground) using our magnifier, one of our children found a swallowtail butterfly, so we found it a good opportunity to talk about the life cycle of the butterfly, and let them see the butterfly’s small details. We bought a Microscope and the children were fascinated by the idea of magnifier and how they can see the butterfly; eyes, legs, and different colors on its wings. Also, we created two work about the life cycle of the butterfly one for the young children which is matching the Monarch butterfly figurine with the cards and the second work was a nomenclature cards for the older children who they can read and lay out nomenclature cards of the butterfly’s life cycle with the tickets that have the words.
