Kindergarten Unit Lesson Plan Introduction: My kindergarten learners are very diverse. It is comprised of twenty-one 5 and 6 year old students. There are 11 boys and 10 girls. In my class, there are children with ADHD, severe learning disabilities, multiple ESL learners, Cerebral Palsy, Severe Behavior, and other assortment of needs.
Butterflies and Bees! For instance, first and foremost, it is important to note that a bee and a butterfly undergoes four stages to complete one life cycle, and the lifespan of both is very short in regards to the ingenious process they embarks on to evolve. In the same way, butterflies and bees fates and demise are sealed unceremoniously. Butterflies and bees align effortlessly with Shakespeare’s depiction of the lives of Lady McDuff and Lady Macbeth. The duration of butterflies and bees is uncannily advantageous in introducing, differentiating, and validating the attributes of Lady McDuff and Lady Macbeth of Shakespeare’s acclaimed tragedy “Macbeth.

The Monarch Butterfly is a milkweed butterfly in the family Nymphalidae. It’s the most common butterfly in North America , and is considered an “iconic pollinator species”.(Conserving Monarch butterflies And their habitats).The Monarch Butterflies have many nicknames such as, “milkweed, common tiger, wanderer and black veined brown”(Danaus).
“As Americans, we want peace -- we work and sacrifice for peace. But there can be no peace if our security depends on the will and whims of a ruthless and aggressive dictator. I'm not willing to stake one American life on trusting Saddam Hussein.” -George W. Bush. President Bush promised America that he would bring down Saddam Hussein no matter what it took. But why? Why would the president make such an imposing promise? In order to ensure the safety of his people (the Americans) such terrorists must be brought down. President Bush was willing to sacrifice the lives of many heroic soldiers to halt terrorism from afflicting this country. Are the lives of these young brave soldiers worth the sacrifice that is needed to bring change into the
In the book “ In the Time of the Butterflies,” the author describes the lives of four revolutionary sisters in the Dominican Republic. These sisters were Dede, Patria, Maria Teresa, and Minerva Mirabal. Minerva was the one who stood out the most to me. The passion she had and showed made her sound like a sacrificial leader. Minerva was the type to stand up for what she believed in. Rafael Trujillo was the leader of the Dominican Republic, whatever he say or want to be changed it changes. He was a brutal dictator. Minerva showed him that she is brave and strong. In the book she stated “ I was the one always standing up to him”. When she needed his help she buttered him up into making a deal with her. The Mirabal sisters will always be a
Butterflies exhibit polymorphism, mimicry and aposematism. Some, As Lepidoptera, butterflies have four wings that are covered with tiny scales (see photo). The fore and hindwings are not hooked together, permitting a more graceful flight. An adult butterfly has six legs, but in the nymphalids, the first pair is reduced. After it emerges from its pupal stage, a butterfly cannot fly until the wings are unfolded. A newly emerged butterfly needs to spend some time inflating its wings with blood and letting them dry, during which time it is extremely vulnerable to predators. Some butterflies' wings may take up to three hours to dry while others take about one hour. Most butterflies and moths will excrete excess dye after hatching. This fluid may be white, red, orange, or in rare cases,

What moves us to inquire about the world we live in; what inspires us to change, and how do we grow intellectually? Knowledge is an accumulation of experiences, which are obtained either conventionally in a school setting, or indiscriminately through life-experiences. Likewise, from these experiences conventional or otherwise, information is then transferred, acquired, and reappropriated. However, within this sequence of events knowledge is at risk of misinterpretation. In those circumstances it is the story, the most ancient forms of communication that is capable of making the unfamiliar appear obvious. Through her story Flight Behaviour, Barbara Kingsolver acts as a teacher, surreptitiously conveying her own opinions on education and the process of learning through the development of her characters. Subsequently, Kingsolver provides a valuable outlook regarding the elements required to engage intellectually; and furthermore her outlook offers creditable insight regarding the process of learning. Not merely an anecdotal novel, Kingsolver conveys a fundamental educational paradigm through her narrative. Indeed, engaging intellectually requires both aptitude and enthusiasm, but Kingsolver proposes that education is far more complex than a simple binary. Kingsolver suggests that intellectual engagement is both a process and a maturation of one's ability to reason, which is fundamentally rooted in logic and passion.
The Butterfly Rainforest did provide me an opportunity to experience nature in Leopold's perspective because when I entered the area I was completely immersed in the beautiful nature and butterflies. I had complete respect for the creatures and I admired the butterflies from afar. I sensed myself as one with nature because I felt like I was in a new scene that was surrounded by plants. So, I was very content and excited to see the different butterflies in person. My favorite thing in the Butterfly Rainforest was when the butterflies would fly above my head or near me. The other people that were visiting the Butterfly Rainforest were respectful of nature even kids that were at a young age. The kids seemed to love seeing the butterflies because
It was a usual day for the reckless princess known as Star Butterfly she was riding around her kingdom on an angry wild warnicorn crashing into buildings the male breaking everything in his path. She wasn't your ordinary princess in fact you could say she was a wild child causing mass destruction where
Day and night, spiders and butterflies, positive and negative. Everyday people go through life with the choice to be a butterfly or a spider. Whether they do this on purpose or as involuntary reaction to the environment they come from, we all have the opportunity to strive for better things.
Angelic Butterfly I started my quest to find heaven/ purgatory I desired to find sanctuary I wanted to be free from the sins of the world Little did I know the only way to purgatory/heaven is to walk through hell I entered the gates of hell into the unknown abyss As I walked through hell, I traveled through each layer Of sin. I was afraid, yet I knew I was not alone I felt a presence with me As I went deeper into hell, I felt the heat of the flames get hotter against my skin I saw others engulfed in the flame yet the fire did not consume me As I walked further into the abyss the sins and torment was beyond description; chilling I reached the very bottom of hell, and there stood Satan Stillness
Experimental Group: Five thousand Peacock Butterflies with intact eyespot display and sound producing ability. Control Group: Five thousand Peacock Butterflies with removed eyespot display and sound producing ability. Experiment: The butterflies will be left from each group separately behind identical predators (i.e. yellowhammers and great tits on both groups). Afterward, the number of butterflies left in each group will be counted, which determines how efficient the butterflies of each group are in defending
Coral reefs worldwide are currently being threatened by climate change and ocean acidification. A recent estimate shows that approximately 30% of reefs have already sustained significant damage, and up to 60% of reefs may be completely destroyed by the year 2030 (Hughes et al.). Because of the fragile state of reefs worldwide, it is important to be able to determine the health of reef systems. One possible indicator may be found in the behavior of butterflyfish. Butterflyfish are common in Indo-Pacific and Caribbean reef comminutes, with species representing three different trophic guilds including corallivory, planktivory, and benthic omnivory. Marc Slattery and Deborah J. Gochfield created the “Butterflyfish indicator hypothesis,” which assumes that as coral condition decreases which results in lower quality food sources, it will cause a chain reaction of obligate corallivores changing their behavior or even emigrating away from their territories, while facultative corallivores are less effected by these changes in coral health. In order to study this, Slattery and Gochfeld studied butterflyfish behavior at three different sites in Guam, with all three being at different stages of overall health. Cocos lagoon (CL) was the most heavily impacted, with the Piti Bomb Holes (PBH) being slightly less impacted, and Luminao Reef (LR) being relatively unimpacted. The researchers wanted to
