Today, 4-H Agent, Lauren Langley visited with Malpass Corner Elementary School’s 2nd grade classrooms for Science Day! The lesson taught is from the 4-H curriculum for 2nd Grade titled, “Bug Out.” Each lesson was an hour long and there were a total of 3 classrooms. Students learned about insect characteristics, simple metamorphosis, and complete metamorphosis. The photo below displays the life cycle of a butterfly, which is complete metamorphosis (4 stage life cycle).
Students were then able to make a life cycle wheel based off of the meal moth, which is complete metamorphosis, like the butterfly. The wheel displays each stage: eggs, larva, pupa, and adult. The students were able to express their artistic side by drawing the different stages! Below are some photos of the completed life cycle wheels that the students made today! Enjoy!
I can tell you one thing- Malpass Corner Elementary School’s 2nd grade students LOVE science and they LOVE 4-H!!!!
