    Note to Teachers: The first two program links here I think would be suitable for high school students,
    then I include several books more suitable for younger students. There are tons of "age appropriate" resources for your use...

    Art Project: Collect pictures of butterflies to make a classroom mural, or to draw and color their designs; you can use paper or cardboard butterflies taped to a simple stick (BBQ skewer or dowel etc.) as simple but beautiful puppets to tell a story or make a small theater scenery/background and make a video of your story show, with narration and music etc. Butterflies can inspire lots of student projects...
    And watch this lively musical brief (3 minute) video of beautiful butterflies
