Springing Into Learning

I'm excited to be linking up with Elementary Antics and this awesome Springing into Learning Blog Hop!  I can't wait to see what everyone has to share!

Not sure about you, but when I think of spring, I immediately think of flowers blooming, butterflies and critters going about helping to create our beautiful world.  I also start to think of a new way to teach my unit on life cycles.

I teach 2nd grade in Virginia, so my science standards for life cycles include butterflies, white tailed deer (an all too common critter in Virginia!!) and plants. I looked on Pinterest for some cute (but educational) craft ideas and this is what I found! I linked up my Springtime Pinterest board, too!

I thought to make it geared more toward my standards, I could add some clipart to make the egg, caterpillar, chrysalis, and butterfly.

So adding my clip art, this is what I came up with!  You can also download the life cycle wheel as a freebie during this weekend only!  It is a little different than what is pictured above, I edited it to make it complete, instead of cut/paste...and copier friendly!!

Hope you can use this cute (but importantly....educational!!) craftivity!  Check out what else everyone is doing as we Spring into Learning! 

Thanks for hopping by!!
