Recently, some of our SK students, Jerry, Caden and Rafael, began to create a butterfly garden using recycled materials, rocks, glass pebbles, and artificial flowers. Very early on in this process they retrieved the models of a butterfly, caterpillar, chrysalis and egg, and used these to begin to create an imaginary story. Already on the light table was an iron butterfly creation.
- “There’s two butterflies. They are daddy butterflies.” (Rafael)
- “No. One is the Mommy. The Mommy butterfly came back to see her son.” (Caden)
- “OK. Mine is really a birdie in a butterfly costume.” (Rafael)
