I spent the morning in Mrs. Carrera's second grade class making caterpillars and butterflies. This was another project conceived and executed by the dynamic Art in the Classroom duo (Faith and myself). We had help from a student's mom, too. The project was designed to explore the idea of symmetry and pattern in butterflies/caterpillars and quilts. It was a mash-up of sorts. The kids really enjoyed it. Most of the caterpillars had to be finished at home, though as we ran out of time!
