You’ll find this inexpensive product at my TpT store – studentsÂ balance a butterfly. It can be a quickÂ science activity, a take home activity, orÂ an eventÂ for a family science night.Â Maybe you need an activity to add to your sub folder?
Youâ€™ll need some cardstock, scissors, and pennies with tape or large paperclips.
My product includes a PowerPointâ„¢ with copyright-free images of balancing objects. If you just need a pattern, you can find it here.
Students could easily extend the activity using a bit of imagination and an index card to create a new object that balances easily. Then they share their new options with classmates.
While you’re balancing butterflies here are a few poems from familiar poets about insects.
|The Butterfly Jar
A Pizza the Size of the Sun
|Something Big has Been Here
The New Kid on the Block,Â Jack Prelutsky
|A Light in the Attic
Falling Up, Shel Silverstein
