PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

butterflies: life cycles: foldables: lapbooks: writing: science: Spring

This Spring butterfly life cycle unit combines science, reading and writing in a culminating foldable butterfly booklet for your first grade, second grade or third grade classroom. It’s loaded with over 25 highly engaging, hands-on mini-lessons, learning labs, activities and printables that provide rigor and depth, but most of all FUN! Differentiate easily with the multiple writing prompts and mini-book pages that you choose to use. Get your students writing about science as they complete a culminating project perfect for assessment by displaying their thinking and learning with a foldable butterfly life cycle booklet. These make a great open house display, too! Planning is a breeze with the included pacing guide, lesson plans, vocabulary work, and unit assessment. I’ve also included 9 quick and easy mini-lessons and 5 fun learning labs.

Each component of the foldable butterfly booklet aligns to a mini-lesson. Students learn about it, write about it, then add it to their booklets. All of the mini-lessons include lesson visuals that can be projected during the lesson or printed as a reference chart to display and support students in working independently. Many of the response activities and mini-books can be easily included in your literacy centers.

Included are:
Butterfly life cycle bulletin board display with title and picture cards, arrows, and 4 life cycle stages
Large vocabulary cards & vocabulary picture cards (with close up details of real butterflies and caterpillars)
Student word/definition match cards
