Sandpaper Butterfly

This stunning butterfly is an example of a third grade lesson on symmetry.  Students viewed a colorful array of butterfly photos for inspiration.  After cutting a wing and tracing it twice onto sandpaper, students applied a heavy layer of crayon.  The butterflies were ironed onto white paper, melting the crayon onto the sandpaper.

  1. I love the rich colors of the butterfly. I teach art/science and think this will work well with our unit on textures! Thanks for the post.
