Get inspired to engage your students in a full day of outdoor learning, connecting to the life cycle of a butterfly. Help students honour their own difficulties by recognizing how, like the butterfly in chrysalis, their challenges can result in great transformation. Doing so can foster well-being, hope, and resilience.
