What Did You Observe?

As you watch the movies listed above, or even better go outside and find your own butterfly, moth or snail to observe, take some time to really study it. Pretend that you have to describe it to someone who's never seen one before. How would you explain it to them?

Ask some questions. What makes you go, "hmmmm" or say "I wonder"? No question is off limits. Think of as many questions as you can. Now you are curious! See if you can find some answers!

Use the worksheet on the second page of the PDF below to write down your observations. Also, please share! Go to the Nature's Art Club Private Facebook group and share your art and observations with our community!
