Butterfly work

 This week we began studying butterflies.  We ordered caterpillars and watched them munch away at their special food.   We offered a painting work to show that butterfly wings are (mostly) symmetrical.  The child paints one side, lightly pushes it down with their hand and unfolds.
 Voila, a mostly symmetrical butterfly!
We then offered a life cycle work.  The child glues various pasta and leaves on the plate to show the egg, caterpillar, chrysalis and butterfly phases.
