Symmetrical Butterflies, 1st Grade
This is a very cute simple art lesson. I started by having my students fold their paper in half, "hot dog style." Then, students drew half of a butterfly with oil pastel. Next, students folded their paper so their design was now on the inside, like a sandwich. Students then rubbed their paper until the design was copied onto the opposite side of their paper. Once the butterfly was drawn, students used watercolors to paint.
