A Metamorphosis in Learning

How does that caterpillar become a butterfly and can that little egg really become a frog? Exploring life cycles can be an amazing adventure.


Creating an Adventure for Children

Our Adventure in Learning begins with observations and the study of life cycles. In this session we will focus on a science lesson to use with students based on the life science standard. Scientific journals and postcards will be created to enhance the learning process.
