Our Word View - Fly

What is Our Word View?  A collaboration between two friends who lost touch over the years but have reconnected online.  We share a love of the ocean, photography, quotes, animals and family.  Often times our photographic interpretations of our word of the week are very similar.

This week Liz chose the word fly for our photographic interpretation.  I hope you will go over to Our Word View and see what Liz shares this week.

This past spring my class documented the metamorphosis of the painted lady butterfly.  Each student had his or her own pupa and observed it evolve until they all emerged.  As a class we released our butterflies.  Each student was able to put his or her hand into the butterfly house, have a butterfly crawl onto their hand and then set them free.  It was one of the most inspirational experiences I have had as a teacher.  Watching all the butterflies in flight was amazing.
