Nature is a Great Teacher -Study about Life and Death-

The children of YMCA Global Kindergarten had a very important lesson about nature. During our park time, we could catch many tiny butterflies and a dragonfly which we brought back to our classroom. After some time, we found the dragonfly eating one of the tiny butterflies inside the box. Some children were very sad and tearful, while others were calm and they could understand and explain that it is a part of natural process and that one insect can feed on other small ones in order to stay alive. One friend said that we made a mistake to keep the bugs together; another children answered that because these small butterflies are the food of this dragonfly, it would have caught and fed on them even if they were out in nature.
