Butterflies give kids lessons in life cycles

Kindergartners in the Texarkana Independent School District experienced the end of a life cycle with the release of their Painted Lady butterflies.

“We just feel it’s more important now than ever to be good stewards of the Earth and teach children about gardening,” Boyette said. “The wonders of nature … the key is to start children young so they have an appreciation.”

Highland Park Elementary kindergarten teacher Daniela Tirrito said she incorporated the butterflies’ life cycle into her curriculum with videos, butterfly painting and other activities.
