First graders learn with worms

William Kelley Elementary
We have worms! Yes, for science class the first graders at Kelley Elementary are studying the life cycles of wax worms, meal worms, and butterfly larvae. The students, under the direction of Mrs. Taintor and Mrs. Ellis are raising the various insects in their classrooms to study and compare the four unique life cycle stages – egg, larva, pupa, and adult. Although the first three stages are similar, the insect adult stages are very different. The students are excited to witness the various insect transformations!
