Product Description
Butterfly, Butterfly

A creative way to teach about Butterflies and Butterfly life cycles. Decorate your classroom and teach your kiddos about the beauty of these delicate insects. Your kiddos will love creating and putting on their own personal touches on these unique Butterfly Lanterns.

Paper lanterns are great for developing fine motor skills such as: folding, coloring, painting, gluing, cutting, listening and following directions. Embedded within this Butterfly project there are several activities to extend your students learning about the Butterflies.

These units are designed in a Mix and Match format. You are able to pick the pieces that you want, depending on the needs and the abilities of your students…so many possibilities.

This unit can be approached in several ways. Either as a quick Butterfly project that will take about 90 minutes to complete. Or as long, in-depth project that will take upwards of a week or two to complete. In my classroom, creating the basic lantern will take my kiddos about 90 minutes (coloring and assembly). Adding on Butterflies or Butterfly life cycle cut-outs will take an additional 45 to 60 minute block of time. I normally have my Kiddos write about each life cycle stage or facts about Butterflies on the back of the cut-outs.

• Printed Butterfly lantern templates
• Numerous Butterfly trims and Life Cycle trims
• Realistic Butterfly Cut- outs….check out the preview to see everything included!
