◎Origins of carton book activity:
     Given that lower grade students had never reared butterflies and did not understand the butterfly ecology, so we chose to introduce butterflies in a static way. While of all static activities, “story-telling” could draw students’ attention most. As a result, we believed that students would like to learn the knowledge of butterflies if we taught by story-telling, which could also be their prior knowledge for the future subject called “Science and Technology”.

◎Features of carton book:
  
The pictures of carton book were all drawn big and clear. In addition, there were pictures alone on the front (captions would only be on the back), so the characteristics of every butterfly could be drawn much clearer than photos, which made it easier to get students focused when introducing.

◎Steps of making carton book:
  
First, conduct a research project about butterflies (paper, draft). Second, draw the research content on particular drawing papers, and write down the caption of each picture on the back. At last, put those papers into the designed carton so that it would become an interesting storybook.

◎Selecting themes of carton book:
       Students having rearing experience and having participated in the challenges were given priority. After asking those students’ interests and will, “Pachliopta aristolochiae interposita”, “Danaus chrysippus”, and “Papilio demoleus Linnaeus”, these three kinds of butterflies ended up being the topic of the research project.

◎Story-telling through carton book:
Students would keep practicing story-telling skills before entering classes.

◎Reflections from the Whispering of Butterflies team:
       We spent our two-month summer vacation conducting the research project and further turned it into a carton book. The process of making a carton book was surely complex. Because of the particular papers, only crayons could be used to color (and we had to color with forces). After coloring, we were asked to turn over the papers and write down the captions for each picture. At last, we practiced story-telling skills and then went to classes to tell the stories onstage. If any school brother or sister asked a question during story-telling, we had to answer them in detail. Along with the story going to an end, there would be a quiz contest. Unexpectedly, many school brothers and sisters knew the answers. It seemed that most of them had focused on listening, which was quite encouraging.
