“The National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) affirms that learning science and engineering practices in the early years can foster children’s curiosity and enjoyment in exploring the world around them and lay the foundation for a progression of science learning in K–12 settings and throughout their entire lives” (NSTA, 2018). Children exposed to scientific activities are able to connect with their community in a closer sense and understand their surroundings better. I created a three-day lesson on the lifecycle of a butterfly and presented it to a preschool class at Heaven Sent in Pacific Grove.
