I created this packet to help my students learn about the life cycle of the butterfly. I’m a believer that children learn best by doing, so this item is full of hands-on activities! I’ve included title pages, directions, and patterns for three life cycle projects in both color and black/white depending on your needs and preferences for photocopying. The only item you’ll need to provide is a paper fastener for each life cycle wheel!
Here’s what is included in this packet!
Pages 1-2: Title/Contents
Pages 3-8: Butterfly Life Cycle Wheel - Simply photocopy the patterns on tagboard and the pictures/labels on paper, then have fun assembling your wheel! I’ve included both color and black/white versions of the clip art.
Pages 9-12: Butterfly Foldable - Photocopy on paper or tagboard, depending on your preference and intended use. Complete directions, plus color and black/white pictures are included. (I just love using foldables with my students! They can be used for practice or assessment, serve as long-lasting learning tools, and students love making them!)
Pages 13-18: My Butterfly Life Cycle Book - Photocopy, then students can cut and staple the pages together. Then they illustrate and write about each stage of the life cycle. This is a great way to assess their understanding. Both color and black/white versions of the cover is included.
Pages 19-20: Disclaimer/Credits
This packet is geared toward first and second graders. Have fun and enjoy this packet with your students - they’ll become experts on the Butterfly Life Cycle in no time!
The Butterfly Life Cycle is also one of four packets within in my Life Cycle Bundle, which also includes frog, ladybugs, and plants. This bundle is available in my TpT Store for $9.00! You basically get one individual set free when you purchase my bundle! Check it out!
