Fourth-graders’ learning takes flight with multi-subject collaboration

Fourth-grade students began the art portion of their multi-subject monarch butterfly curriculum in Lotsepich art instructor Jody Knoop’s class. Students traced over a butterfly stencil, created negative space, and learned transitional shading using a limited color palette. After cutting out their butterflies, students will create a caterpillar out of wood, and larva out of paper mâché for their fulcrum, which will simulate a flying butterfly and its lifecycle.
