Butterflies…

During our insect week we spent a little bit of time covering the butterfly life cycle.  Everyone made an egg and chrysalis out of play dough, and we also made caterpillars on leaves using construction paper.  We thought it would be fun to make a tree out of all of the leaves on our bulletin board.  We also painted coffee filters and used old style clothespins to make our own butterflies!  We had fun.  To put all of the concepts together we made a picture where we used green paper, green crayons and drew the butterflies’ ‘habitat’.  On this paper we glued a pom-pom egg, pipe-cleaner caterpillars and chrysalis, and beautiful foil butterflies to show their whole cycle!  Check out our finished products…
