A Visit with the Butterfly Man

First-grade students received a personal account of tropical rain forest adventures from butterfly collector Steve Fratello, who shared his rare and varied collection of butterflies and moths. Mr. Fratello educated the students on the differences between butterflies and moths and how these beautiful creatures adapt to their environment through mimicry and camouflage. He also showed the students photographs and illustrations of rainforests in Ecuador, Guyana, Peru and more.
