Clothespin Butterflies - Give each student one slot-type clothespin. Have them insert 12 inch pieces of colored tissue paper into the slot by pinching it in the middle. Add antennae by winding a half piece around the head of the pin leaving two pieces sticking up for the antennae.

Ink-blot Butterflies - These butterflies turned out prettier than any we did. I copied a butterfly pattern onto many different colors of construction paper. I let the students choose which color they wanted.

I allowed those with the best behavior for the day to choose first and worked my way down our discipline ladder. I also photocopied the same butterfly pattern onto white paper, but I reduced the pattern a little.

The students were each given a white butterfly as well. They cut out both, then we folded the white butterflies in half. We opened the butterfly back up and they added tempra paint blobs to one side only.

Then we folded the butterfly back together and pressed. Then I showed them how to gently pull the top of the butterfly back up. Once they were dry, I stapled only the middle of the painted butterfly to the middle of the larger butterfly.

They turned out very pretty! I wish I'd saved one to show you. Symmetry Butterflies - I just used the same paint blot idea from above to teach a math lesson on symmetry. We started with a sheet of black construction paper folded in half, then the student chose 3 different colors of paint and dripped it onto one side of the construction paper.

Press the paper together and slowly peel apart. Once the paint was dry, I refolded the paper and placed a half butterfly template that I drawn on the fold and cut it out.

Then I used a long arm stapler to staple the butterfly to another sheet of construction paper, only stapling down the middle for a 3D effect. This would also make a great class quilt, but since I was only working with one student, I don't think that would be a very big quilt! Cut each butterfly in half.

Give each student a butterfly half. Turn on some music and have them fly around the room until they find the other student with the matching half to their butterfly.Don’t Tell. Show!
