Spring Butterflies: Art + Reading + Science + Math + Technology
🎨 At New Market School, Ms. Anna Parks collaborated with Mrs. Lisa Taylor for a kinder - sixth grade unit on Butterflies. During the weeks of this project students observed the life cycle of a butterfly, researched Painted Lady Butterflies, and listened to Mrs. Taylor, NMS Librarian, read books about butterflies.
Meanwhile, during Ms. Parks' Art Class, students learned about how some butterflies have colorful symmetrical patterns, while others camouflage into their environment. Ms. Parks also used Brain Pop Jr. to teach the students about a butterfly's life cycle and migration.
During this art project, students used facts they learned to plan a symmetrical pattern for their butterfly. They colored their butterfly with a color scheme of their choice. Each student used collage techniques to create an environment for their butterfly to live in. Last, students glued their butterfly onto their background. Between Art Class and Library, students learned so much about Butterflies and each had at art piece they could be proud of! 🦋
