The purpose of the weeks worth of butterflies and migration lessons is to inform students about the world that is around them, from as close as their backyard, to their school campus, even to a location that is just driving distance away from them. As the students go throughout the week they will come to know and hopefully, appreciate, the very insects that fly among us so casually. The students will not only learn about butterflies and their characteristics, but they will also learn about migration. Students will learn that it’s not only people who migrate, but it is also, birds, butterflies, and other types of animals too. These lessons will help students appreciate the life of not only themselves but of other beings we share this earth with too.
