For unit on plants, I would use this idea to have the students draw the plant life cycle on paper plates. Each student would have their own plate and draw each step of the plant life cycle. It would be a good assignment for independent practice.
I think this is the most fun way to wrap up a kindergarten butterfly unit ever. “The students used their butterfly proboscis (straw) to sip nectar (apple juice) from a flower” This would be perfect to do when you return from releasing butterflies!
