Our unit on Butterfly - Part II

We loved our unit on butterfly so much that we extended that learning into play and it was all initiated by D.  It was she that started off creating antennae by twisting fuzzy sticks/pipe cleaners onto her headband!  We pretended searching for flowers and found one with tasty nectar!

We loved drinking the nectar using our proboscis! Yum!  We danced around in celebration, flapping our butterfly wings!

Don't you love it when so much learning happens through play!


  1. Great butterfly unit! My daughter was always a dancer (and is a professional ice dancer now). She would have loved the butterfly wings and dancing when she was little! :) Deb @

  2. Thanks Deb! The wings were the best part of the lesson!


I would love to know what you think, so please take a moment and leave a comment! Thank you for reading!
