Great for classroom or homeschool use, these daily science stations are intended to be thorough without being overwhelming for the teacher or the student. Time spent on a unit will depend upon the needs of the student(s) but they are intended to be completed by doing one station per day for 7 days. Complete each station as a class or allow students to rotate through them in groups, as the material is straight forward enough to be done independently.
Every station card topic touches on new and also previously learned information and each has a corresponding YouTube video or website link. (Also included is a list of excellent book suggestions that correspond with the life cycle being covered).
Students then take what they have learned and apply it through use of bright and colorful manipulatives. Mini-books act as a means to measure student comprehension by completing 3 mini-book pages per station. These include an observation cut and paste, a special task, and space to create art.
Station topics and manipulatives included in this butterfly unit are:
3 Part Montessori Cards to Learn Butterfly Terms
Paper Life Cycle Discs
Vocabulary Matching Cards
Butterfly Anatomy Map with Labels
Butterfly Fact Strips and Butterfly Type Cards
Butterfly vs. Moths Comparison Strips
Butterfly Garden Jar with Flowers
