Supplies Used: Poster or tag board, Marker or pen, Pencil, Ruler, Scissors, Stickers
The teacher will die-cut the materials for student use prior to the lesson.
- Die-cut the Butterfly from two different colors of tag or poster board.
- Cut off the bottom 1/2" of the Butterfly body so it is flush with the bottom of the Butterfly wings.
- With a ruler and pencil, draw a line down the middle of each Butterfly body.
- On one Butterfly, cut a slit half way up the body, following the penciled line. Widen the slit by cutting right next to the original slit. This will allow the Butterflies to fit together easily.
- On the other Butterfly, cut a slit half way down the body, following the penciled line. Widen the slit by cutting right next to the original slit.
- Interlock the two Butterflies at the slits until they align on the bottom of the wings.
- Lay the Butterflies flat, and adhere names with alphabet stickers, markers or pens.
- When the Butterflies are opened, the name of the student is easily seen (Main Photo).
