Use this butterfly observation journal to record the different stages of the butterfly life cycle through pictures and writing. Students draw, write, or use a combination to describe what they observe. Students then decide what stage the butterfly is in. They keep track of the days that pass and how the caterpillar changes. You can use this every few days so they understand the timeline of the life cycle.
