Today, we used symmetry to make beautiful butterflies. First, the butterfly was in a jumbled up puzzle. The students had to cut the butterfly pieces out and assemble them into a butterfly.

Also, we are very excited to report that both of our caterpillars have gone into their chrysalises!
Here are the symmetrical butterflies:
