DAWN MARIE SIMMS BUTTERFLY
GARDEN
AND TORTOISE HABITAT
JOHN S. PARK-EDISON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

April 22, 2005 marked the beginning of Dawn's Garden.

When completed, it will represent a living textbook on change. Flowers will be planted and cultivated by the students. Sunflowers, holly hocks and even dandelions will bloom and die with the seasons. The garden will serve as a beautiful back drop for the stars of our project.

Angel, our leading tortoise lady, will live in the tortoise habitat and will watch change come and go year after year. She will live 100 years so change to her will seem very slow and methodical.

In contrast, our butterfly will have 3 weeks of metamorphosis and one beautiful and glorious week of life.

The garden, like the Disney movie The Lion King, will clearly depict the "Circle of Life". Our teachers will use this living textbook to teach our children about life. We, as parents, from this experience will learn to better embrace the changes that come with our lives.

"Remember if nothing ever changed, there would be no butterflies." -- Anonymous

We should all be so proud.
