We Can Too!

We Can Too! invites students to notice how nature expresses itself in cycles. We will look for examples of natural cycles in the schoolyard and follow the adventures of Cate the Caterpillar as she transforms from caterpillar to butterfly.

This program encourages students to adopt a growth mindset and to discover their own unique gifts. Click here to learn more about our Butterfly Cycle framework.

My class really enjoyed the program! Stephanie did such a wonderful job and is a natural with the students! I would definitely be interested in another program with Thimbleberry Learning.
