This comprehensive butterfly life cycle unit combines science, reading and writing with hands on leaning labs for first grade, second grade, and third grade students to learn about the stages in the life cycle of butterflies, pollination, the compound eye, metamorphosis, adaptations and so much more! Whether or not you raise live butterflies, this quality science resource is the perfect addition to your butterfly life cycle activities.

Packed with over 25 highly engaging activities. The hands-on mini-lessons, experiments, activities, and printables provide rigor and depth, but most of all FUN!
