Butterfly Paper Folding / Bulletin Board

7 Apr

butterfly bulletin boardIt is Spring here in the Northwest.  Many of the classes use butterflies for instruction on the cycle of life. They watch caterpillars form cocoons and develop into butterflies.  I found directions for folding paper butterflies on Pinterest.   They made a good activity for my bulletin board and a direction following activity.  It also helped to reinforce what was happening  in classrooms. Here is a picture of the bulletin board.

The directions were fairly simple and could be completed within a  20 minute time frame.  I added pipe cleaner  antennae.  The students just bent a pipe cleaner in half and wrapped the ends around their fingers a couple of times. They then stapled it to the top.

These directions really reinforced the concept of half.  We also talked about parts of a butterfly.  I was surprised to find my students didn’t know what antennae were.

I couldn’t make better directions then what were already posted here.  There are easy to follow directions  on  goorigami.com.  I just put them up on my iPad.
