Fruity Butterfly – Kids in the Kitchen

Butterfly Symmetry craftOur Kindergarten class did a learning module on Butterflies. They learned all about the life cycle, and even had some in their class to observe. One important concept was Butterfly Symmetry… you see Butterflies look the same on both sides!

Symmetry is an early learning concept.. Kids learn to match one side to the other with this snack.
