Project in progress

What is your wish for this project?

It is our wish to create a garden on our school property in which we can release butterflies each spring. We would like to create a garden with plants and vegetation that will attract and sustain butterflies in our school habitat.

How are you going to do it?

As part of our Third Grade Science Curriculum, our students observe the life cycle of painted lady butterflies from pupa to butterfly. After observing the cycle, butterflies are released. We do not have an appropriate habitat for them to flourish and nourish. Our project will research, purchase, plant and maintain the appropriate plants needed in a butterfly garden. Students involved in our 21st Century program will do this work under the supervision of their teacher.
