Spring is here and butterflies are in the air.  At Valentine Elementary, Ms. Harte’s class participated in a learning unit centered around the Painted Lady butterfly.  Five Painted Lady butterflies helped the students learn about the life cycle of a butterfly from larvae to caterpillar to butterflies inside a pavilion ‘pup’ tent.  Students were able to get inside the tent and interact with the butterflies getting hands-on experience and observing their growth.  The butterflies were released outside the school last week but each time they see a butterfly they are likely to remember their classroom experience where they watched nature come to life.
