Butterfly Science!

on June 6, 2013

Butterfly Science!

Today we learned about the science behind butterflies, and made fun art projects! Did you know that butterflies have bilateral symmetry? This means that they have two identical halves. We made “squish paintings” today to make our own symmetrical butterflies.

We also learned about butterfly camouflage. Some butterflies are colored to blend in with their environment. Others are bright colored or have spots to scare away things that might want to eat them.

Join us in Sproutside everyday to learn about lots of cool bugs!
