Lesson Plan # 1 ACTIVITY TITLE/NAME: Butterfly Life Cycle…In Noodles! SCIENCE CONCEPT : Living things go through a growth cycle. IL EARLY LEARNING STANDARDS : Explore concepts and information about life, physical and earth sciences. 12.A.ECa Observe, investigate, describe and categorize living things. LEARNING OBJECTIVES : Students will be able to identify the stages in a butterfly life cycle. Students will be able to create a model of a complete life cycle. Students will be able to demonstrate the correct order of a butterfly life cycle. PROCESS SKILLS USED : Calculating Classifying Communicating Measuring Posing questions SCIENCE VOCABULARY : larva, pupae LTERATURE CONNECTION : Age 4-6 and we will read book on life cycle of butterfly Is That a Butterfly?: A Lift-the-flap Life Cycle ..., Claire Llewellyn. MATERIALS : Paper Plates Pasta: four different types (couscous, rotini, shells, bow-ties) Elmer’s Glue Hand Lens Marker ADVANCE PREPARATION : Gather materials, Produce or view images of butterfly life cycles SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS : I will do it in small group INTRODUCTION : Inform the students that today they are all going to the life cycle model of a butterfly. A butterfly has a complete life cycle with four stages: egg, larva, pupae, and adult butterfly. Explain that they are going to make a diagram for the life cycle using pasta.

PROCEDURES : Give each student a paper plate Using a marker and have them write out the names of the four stages on the paper plate. “Egg” at the top, “Larva” at the right, “Pupae” at the bottom and “Adult” at the left Draw arrows clockwise from “Egg” to “Larva” and from “Larva” to “Pupae” and so forth Put a dot of glue under “Egg.” Take a pinch of couscous and drop in on the glue for the egg Put a dot of glue next to “Larva” Place two rotini pasta on the glue for the two larva Put a dot of glue next to “Pupae” Place two of the shells on the glue for the pupae Put a dot of glue next to “Adult Butterfly” Place the bow-tie on the glue for the adult butterfly EVIDENCE OF LEARNING/ASSESSMENT : Ask students to write and/or illustrate what they did during this activity and what they learned from their participation in the activity. ADAPTIONS FOR INDIVIDUAL ABILITIES : Ask students to compare this life cycle to that of another organism. EXTENSION : Ask students to Research different types of life cycles, Ask students to Investigate and illustrate the life cycles of other organisms, Ask students to Make a flip book of a the life cycle of a butterfly Ask students to Compare and contrast their model of a pasta butterfly life cycle with a real butterfly life cycle.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
