Butterfly Life Cycle Class Play
This was written for 5 – 7 year olds (Key Stage I in U.K) as Life Cycles are taught earlier in school - but if anyone wants a script for older children (7 – 11 year olds with a lot more technical information) please let me know. Always happy to write on request.
Cast: 7 eggs - 7 caterpillars - 7 pupae - 7 butterflies! Plus one very busy narrator!
This class play comes with a FREE set of photos taken at July 2016 Butterfly exhibition at the Natural History Museum, London.
Duration: around 10 minutes
Cast (of 29) easily adaptable up or down
Also available off TpT and www.plays-r-ussell.com:

(Enter 7 caterpillars, making loud slurping/munching/eating noises)
Narrator: (To audience) Hmm. Something tells me this lot will never go hungry!
All 7 caterpillars: (In horror) Hungry?
Caterpillar 1: No! Never!
Caterpillar 2: How could we ever get hungry?
Caterpillar 3: When we just eat all the time!
Caterpillar 4: We never stop!
Narrator: I can see that! What an appetite you have!
Caterpillar 5: Oh yes! We like our food!
Caterpillar 6: You try and stop us!
Narrator: Oh I wouldn’t dream of doing such a thing!
Caterpillar 7: Nah! There’s only one thing that would stop us
Narrator: And what would that be?
Caterpillar 7: Being eaten up ourselves!
(All 7 caterpillars glare at Narrator)
Narrator: (Spluttering) Oh sorry! I mean, I’m sure you’re all very tasty. But er um, what would want to eat you?
Caterpillar 1: Birds, that’s what!
Caterpillar 2: Horrible
Caterpillar 3: Feathery
Caterpillar 4: Flying

Caterpillar 6: (Alarmed) Oh oh! I think I just spotted one!
