First Graders Learn About Lifecycles Through Hands-on Observation of Mealworms

The boys observe, measure, record, care for and feed these living creatures in a hands-on way. This project gives our boys a front-row seat to the transformation that these creatures make from larva to pupa to an adult darkling beetle!

Allen-Stevenson’s distinctive “enlightened traditional” approach educates boys to become scholars and gentlemen.
