Don’t Bug Me! 2nd – 5th Grade Science Lesson

Over the past few days science teacher, Ms. Emily, has worked with second through fifth grades on a science lesson titled, “Don’t Bug Me!”  Remember hearing about the new Common Core Standards being fully implemented at The Learning Center at the summer parent meetings?  The “Don’t Bug Me!” lesson is an excellent example of that in action.

Students observed organisms in their environment, compared characteristics of animals, summarized the needs of animals for both energy and growth, learned about the life cycle of animals, understood the effects of environmental change, adaptations and behaviors, understood the interdependence of plants and animals with their ecosystem, and understood how organisms interact and respond the biotic and abiotic components in their environment.

The students loved being outside catching bugs!

The the fact that they got to bring bugs inside to further their studies was icing on the cake!
