Fly, Fly Butterfly

We began our unit on butterflies by watching a scientific video that explores the difference between butterflies and moths and also shows the life cycle of a butterfly.  The students really liked watching this video and learning about butterflies.  To expand on their learning, I had each student write 4 things that they learned about butterflies, moths, or caterpillars.  This worked well because I was able to assist each student individually on their blotter butterflies while the other students worked on their writing.   They need help with the blotting part because if they try to press the paint themselves, it usually looks like a big blob :)

Here are our blotter butterflies:
Stay tuned for our finished projects next week :>)
