Lifecycle of a Ladybug, Helper of the Garden

By: borrela

[image] ladybug on arm[image] first ladybug The third graders at Carpenter Hill Elementary got some hands on learning about the stages of ladybugs.  They witnessed the insects develop from an egg, to larvae, pupa, and finally adult.

About 125 students watched the beetles thoughout their transformation and took notes in their journals as well as detailed drawings to document the event.  When the ladybugs reached the adult stage, the children had a release party.  Now there are approximately 30 to 40 ladybugs eating aphids in our grade level gardens. The students also help weed and maintain the beds that we build last year.  We wanted to support the environment and do something positive for our gardens.  The students enjoyed this so much that now we are raising frogs from tadpoles.  Go Ecosystems!
