PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Butterfly Life Cycle: This pack is a mix up of several different activities to teach the butterfly life cycle. I wanted to make available fiction and nonfiction resources so that this can be an integrated unit taught in both reading and science.

This pack includes:

Resources for Butterfly House by Eve Bunting
• Teaching points for the book Butterfly House by Eve Bunting. The teaching points include questions about the text and also confusing vocabulary.
• Vocabulary lesson- This is a short, one day mini lesson targeting four tier two vocabulary words from the text. These are the same vocabulary terms from the Teaching Points page.
• Two picture vocabulary cards highlighting the two steps in the butterfly life cycle targeted in the text.
• One visualization worksheet. The same activity is also offered as an interactive notebook page for teachers that use interactive notebooks in their classrooms.
• One story structure worksheet. The same activity is also offered as an interactive notebook page for teachers that use interactive notebooks in their classrooms.


Informational Article about Butterfly Life Cycles
• Two page, informational article about the butterfly life cycle. The article is offered in color and in black and white. The article is written at about an end of 2nd reading level.
• Circle map for accessing prior knowledge about butterflies
• Multiple choice questions about the text
• Open response questions about the article. The questions are the same as the multiple choice questions, only the format is different.
• Main idea worksheet about two sections of the text
• Main idea and supporting details worksheet about two sections of the text
• Main idea and supporting details of the entire text


Resource to Teach Comparing and Contrasting
• Two Venn diagrams are included to compare Butterfly House to the informational article. The Venn diagram is available in the format of a worksheet or an interactive notebook page.


Resource to Teach Comparing and Contrasting Expository Writing
• An interactive notebook page for students to write about each step in the life cycle of the butterfly.
• Students can then take this information and transfer it to an interactive notebook page for expository paragraph writing (topic sentence, detail, detail, detail, closing).
• Final draft paper to rewrite the expository paragraph about the butterfly life cycle. Two pages are included. One has a picture of a butterfly on it the other has an empty box for students to illustrate their own writing.


Resource to Teach Butterfly Life Cycles
• Cards to order the butterfly life cycle. The cards are available in color and in black and white. Also included are text to describe, or match to each step in the life cycle. Cards with the transition words are available so students can use these temporal words to order the life cycle.
• Butterfly life cycle craft. Students will create a butterfly with each step of the butterfly life cycle on it. Photographs of the final product are included.
