Caterpillars to Butterflies

Over the past few weeks we've been learning about the life cycle of butterflies.  We welcomed thirteen hungry caterpillars into our classroom and have been watching them closely, documenting their activity and changes from caterpillar to butterfly.  You can follow their journey with us by visiting the display board outside the classroom.

We also spent an afternoon looking closely at some gorgeous books by Northwest Coast Native artists.  We focused on the shapes that were used, particularly in the butterflies.  Then the students created their own butterflies.
