On Friday, May 24 the second graders at Connoquenessing Elementary celebrated with a Spring Fling.
This was a culminating activity for their Life Cycle of the Butterfly science unit. To kick off the event, the second graders recited the poem "Caterpillar Surprise." Then, each second grade teacher created a station for students to work with families. Stations included butterfly pollination simulation, butterfly magnet crafts, and planting butterfly bushes outside of the second grade classrooms. Students and families rotated through the activities together.
Parent Missy Shiever from the Butler Farm Market helped tremendously by providing terracotta pots and flowers for our families to take home as well as the butterfly bushes.
