Integrating your science studies about the butterfly life cycle into your literacy and math time will be easy with this mega pack of butterfly life cycle-themed activities.
To make the most of your ink, I strongly advise laminating the center materials so that they can be used by many children for many years. The pack is separated into two sections for this reason: centers/printables.
Each activity includes a teacher instruction/suggestion page. Some of the materials, such as the posters, can be used for several activities such as flash cards, write the room and more. You can either print the materials multiple times or use the pieces at different times for the various activities. I did not duplicate the multi-use pages in order to save on file size.
Most centers include assessment sheets for students to demonstrate their understanding of each activity.
