Sequence of Instructional Procedures/Activities/Events (provide description and indicate approximate time for each): 1. Identification of Student Prerequisite Knowledge and/or Skills: Almost all middle school students have had some type of experience with butterflies and moths in their lifetimes. They most likely have a basic understanding of the term lifecycle, and metamorphosis. Students have studied and researched the life cycle of the moth. This lesson is a part of a unit. The students will have an opportunity to actually witness the butterfly metamorphosis through an in class project where they will have live specimens to observe and care for. The lesson plan will not cover the entire project. They have already done some basic research for basic projects and will use that skill set for this project. They have also compared and contrasted other animals or plants using a Venn-diagram, which they will use that skill set for this lesson as well. 2. New Knowledge and/or Skills To Be Taught: Possibly show one or more of the following YouTube videos o https://youtu.be/odvYot6Rldw?t=3 o https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iblveeTDkXQ o https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKz5oWqQK00 I will write the learning objectives for the lesson on the white board at the front of the class. We will revisit the goals or objectives for the unit (Big Idea). The students will be introduced to the following vocabulary words: (butterfly) metamorphosis, egg, larva, pupa, chrysalis, cocoon (moth), and, adult. 3. Modeling: I Do (10 min) 1. Explain to students that the butterflies also fall under the scientific insect order name as moths. Ask students to recall the name Lepidoptera. 2. Discuss the life cycle of the moth so that the students use prior knowledge to make inferences about how butterflies and moths are alike and different. Interaction/discussion with class 1. I will then ask to describe butterflies they have seen. Most students are familiar with butterflies and will already have a mental image of them. 2. Use the Promethean Board to show the students pictures of the stages of the butterfly’s life cycle. The picture will be in order of its stages. They will also see the circular flow chart format of the life cycle. Also at this time student will be introduced to a labeled photo of a butterfly and a moth. We will discuss the differences and similarities.

    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.
