Butterfly Art Project: Learning About Symmetry
On a recent visit to a kindergarten class I found out that they were learning about insects and how the wings of butterflies and moths are symmetrical. One of their art projects was painting a giant butterfly and trying to make sure that the wings matched. No two butterflies were alike. All were very colorful! When the paint was dry the butterflies were hung on the classroom walls as beautiful decorations for open house night. I thank teacher Jennifer Best and her students at Haynes Center for Enriched Studies in Los Angeles, California, for sharing this project with me.
