This is a project that I use as a launch activity before beginning a unit on Night by Elie Wiesel or other Holocaust literature. The students do an art project based on poems and pieces of writing provided by the teacher and then do presentations about their butterflies throughout the course of the literature unit. The project serves as a powerful emotional connector for the students to the events of the Holocaust and the characters and plot of the Holocaust literature. I can't tell too many details about the project or I will give it all away, but trust me, it is worth the money! It is one of the best things I do all year! The students LOVE it!
