Life cycles

Our kindergarten and first graders have been learning about the life cycle of a butterfly. We asked questions like "do butterflies have toes?" (Yes!) and used pasta shapes to learn about the life cycle of the butterfly. 

We learned a lot during this unit, and not just about butterflies. We learned about patience as we watched the butterflies grow, being gentle with these delicate creatures, and about the cycles of life as we said goodbye to our butterflies as we set them free at the park.
