Here are some lovely butterflies Kinder made for their spring PTA program.
First we talked about the parts of a butterfly, metamorphosis and symmetry.
we folded a large piece of paper in half, we poured paint on one side
and refolded the paper. Then we carefully opened the paper and set it
out to dry.
next time we met I had the students fold their papers and draw a "B"
then turned the paper to where the fold was on top. Then we cut along
our "B" line. Next I gave them a toilet paper roll and had them glue
that in the middle of our wings...explaining what symmetry is. Then I
passed out paint sticks and had students add decorations to their
The results are amazing! Please to enjoy some awesome butterflies!
