Float like a Butterfly, Learn like an Atom!

Syracuse Academy of Science and Citizenship elementary school 1st grade students release their monarch butterflies, from their Project Based Learning activity, into the wild.

Tuesday, September 28th, 2021Syracuse Academy of Science and Citizenship elementary school first grade students participated in a Project Based Learning (PBL) model where students learned by actively engaging in real-world and personally meaningful projects. This PBL project was one none other than hatching monarch butterflies in their classrooms!

Each first grade class set up a butterfly sanctuary complete with live caterpillars and food. Over the course of a few weeks, students in each class took notes in their science journals and drew pictures of the caterpillars as they prepared their chrysalis. Students made daily observations until the butterflies emerged and later were set free on the school grounds.
