Livingthings have specific characteristics and traits. Living things grow andreproduce. Living things are found almost everywhere in the world. There aresomewhat different kinds in different places. Learning objective/Outcomes First, after discussion I hope that students will understand that there aremany different living things on our earth, not just us. I also hope that theylearn the different processes a butterfly/caterpillar goes through by doinghands on work. I also hope to make the connection with the students of howliving things grow and how all living things need food to grow. Goal My goal is to keep students engaged by using different kind of techniquessuch as visual, auditory, and kinetic. Lesson Summary First we will have some discussion on what we already know about livingthings and caterpillars. I will then read a story about a caterpillar who eatsand eats to grow and then when he grows he wraps himself up and turns intoa butterfly. This will be for my auditory learners because they will be able tosit and listen to a book being read. It will also be for my visual learnersbecause they can see the pictures and they illustrations in this book arebeautiful. Next we will transition to our seats where every student will createtheir own life cycle of the butterfly or caterpillar. To wrap it up will watch ashort video while I evaluate. Materials Book- The Hungry Caterpillar , construction paper, beads, kidney beans,pipe cleaners, crayons, and smart board Instruction procedures:  1.First we will have a short discussion. I will ask questions like Doesanyone know what happens to a caterpillar when it grows up? How does a caterpillar grow to be big? Do we need food to bebig? 5 minutes2.I will then read the book, The Hungry Caterpillar 5-10 minutes3.We will then transition to our desk. In order to create structure I willdismiss them from the reading rug by group/table. Therefore thingswill not be so hectic.4.After, I will pass a piece of construction paper to every child wherewe will fold it into fourths(They might need help with this so I willdemonstrate how to on the smart board and then walk around tohelp)5.In our first square we will draw a leaf and I will pass out a bead. Wewill glue the bead on the paper and I will explain how this is ouregg.6.I will explain that out of this egg comes a caterpillar, so in our 2ndsquare we draw a caterpillar.7.I will then ask what should we draw next? From the story the kidsshould know the caterpillar wraps itself up into a pupa/cocoon. I willpass out a kidney bean to glue on and this will act as our cocoon.8.In our final square the children will create a butterfly by gluingdown a paper clean and drawing wings. Evaluation We will watch the video on our smart board of the butterfly's life cycle. Thevideo is basically a time line so for example, I will pause it on the part thatsays, First, we have an egg. And ask the class what happens next. I will beable to get a sense of if they learned the material.
