Butterfly Gardens

Kristen’s Butterfly Garden is a hands-on and inquiry-based project that allows students to identify plants and bugs, and experience butterfly lifecycles. Their engagement throughout the school year connects with interdisciplinary topics – such as symmetry in mathematics, environmental sciences and ecosystems, and animal lifecycle characteristics and events.
