The Lifecycle of a Butterfly

This weeks school project was to create a poster, depicting the lifecycle of a butterfly. After its completion, Pip presented his work to members of our house, explaining each phase and what a cycle meant. This is part of our current theme of bugs and insects and carries on from the life cycle of turtles and tortoises (our previous focus theme).

An added bonus of this activity was being able to encourage him to do some of the writing without it being a stressful event. I’m struggling with wanting him to write, as well as to write neatly and accurately, while also trying to encourage his sense of fun and whimsy in creating his own fonts.

We are complementing this work with episodes from the amazing tv series Minuscule.
