1st grade and KG both assembled butterflies by first painting toilet paper rolls. Students then traced and cut out heart shapes for wings, drew a face with a marker and added a folded chenille stem as their antenna.

2nd grade created a background texture on white construction paper by rubbing their paper with different shades of green crayons. Then using brown paint and delicate Y shaped lines, students painted a tree branch. Once these dried, students used the bottom of soda bottles to create cherry blossom flower petals.
2nd graders folded black construction paper in half and designed ½ a butterfly along the middle fold. Then students reversed the fold, used their hands to rub on top of the paper, and then opened the papers to reveal a faint symmetrical image to trace for their butterfly’s other side.
2nd grade also designed symmetrical butterflies using crayons and markers.
