GS Live Butterfly Exhibit

“Beautfiul and graceful, varied and enchanting, small but approachable, butterflies lead you to the sunny side of life.  And everyone deserves a little sunshine.”

                                                                                                      -Jeffrey Glassberg

 

            And that is what the Live Butterfly Exhibit brought to the grade school students of ICA -- a seemingly endless stream of sunlight with bursts of joy and torrents of excitement!

            Held last September 18-25, 2017 and viewed by grades 2-6 students during their science class, the Live Butterfly Exhibit showcased various species of eggs, larvae, pupae and butterflies which picqued the curiosity of our young learners.  They were taught about the painstaking journey of the caterpillar before its magical transformation into a beautiful butterfly, how to care for these ostentatiously patterned insects, and the significance of their conservation in maintaining the fragile balance of our ecosystem.

            Shrieks of laughter, incessant inquisitions and unflaggingly active explorations filled the Intermediate Assembly Area.  Long queues during recess and lunch did not deter the students from wanting to repeatedly see the exhibit.  At the end of each day, students left with their purchases of the insect in its various stages, with the intent of sharing the rare experience with their siblings and loved ones. 

            Indeed, this chance to commune with nature showed man’s natural bond with creation.  It is hoped that this experience left in the ICAns a greater love for creation and a deeper gratitude to God, our divine Creator.
