For the week 2 lesson, we explored a variety of life cycles, both for animals and plants. I played another video clip from Bill Nye the Science Guy, as he described life cycles in more depth. His TV program was very quick moving and included a lot of creative sounds and actions. I was hoping it wasn't an auditory overload for this student, so I observed him from across the room to see how he reacted to the video. He was moving his body and arms while listening to the video, which appeared to be his way of engaging with the music and ideas, which I took as a positive sign. However, I felt he needed to experience science through more of his senses than just sound.
This in mind, I decided to create some resources to help him 'feel' what a life cycle of a butterfly might be, hoping it would give him more sensory information to help create a bigger picture of life cycles in his mind.
