This is a picture of some of my pre-k students on the final day of our butterfly unit. They each got their very own butterfly (paid for through Donor’s Choose). They had the chance to learn all about the way a butterfly grows first hand. They became passionate about their insects and learned responsibility, inquiry, and wonder. Though this picture does not have a teacher in it, I believe it shows that good teaching can open up a child’s world and bring education to life.
