The children in Room 1 at St. Anthony’s have been diving deep with inquiries on all things moths and butterflies. It all started when the children found a moth outside with a broken wing! We’ve explored through observational drawings, using nets to try and catch them outside, building with loose parts and pattern artwork to represent their wings. Today’s discussion was what are the similarities and differences between moths and butterflies?
