This is a lesson to help students recall the different parts of a butterfly’s anatomy while also working on creating a finished product with a vinyl cutter. This is meant to be used during a unit where students are learning about butterflies as a hands-on project to support learning.
Computer(s) and/or Laptop(s)
USB connector for computer to Vinyl Cutter connection
Template to get students started
SWBAT design their own butterfly with correct parts I.E. Upper and lower wings, thorax, antennae, head, and abdomen.
SWBAT effectively use Google Draw to create a butterfly either in a group, individually or using a teacher-made template.
SWBAT effectively use a vinyl cutter to bring their design to fruition.
This is when students will draw out their butterflies on Google Draw. They will either create a butterfly from scratch, use a teacher-made template, or create a butterfly as a group/class depending on grade level and class size.
This is when the students prepare the design in Cut Studio, prepare the vinyl cutter for printing (adjust blade etc.), and make their design!
