Everything you need to teach the life cycle of a butterfly in 4 stages (eggs, caterpillar, chrysalis, and butterfly) with materials already differentiated for you. Introduce the butterfly life cycle and facts about butterflies with a slide show and interactive books. Then practice with butterfly life cycle sequencing sheets, flip books, and mini books. You can even test their learning.

This Life Cycle of a Butterfly unit includes:

  • Butterfly Life Cycle Presentation teaches the life cycle of a butterfly and facts about butterflies in a PowerPoint slideshow. Students can also read it on a tablet.
  • Interactive book for students to practice sorting the stages of the butterfly life cycle (can be printed in 2 sizes)
  • Flip Books: Color and black-and-white referencing the life cycle along with facts about each stage.
  • Mini-Book: Black and White for students to color; Color version for teacher example
  • Sequencing Sheets: 10 versions of tasks for students to sequence the life cycle of butterflies including one you can laminate with color pictures, a black and white version for cut and paste and multiple versions students write on with and without pictures.
  • Worksheets & Tests: Versions with symbols to assist in reading, with symbols for answering or simply written and fill-in-the blank for students who can read and write more successfully.


This unit is designed for students on alternate science standards or those needing accommodated materials in the general education classroom. Because it can be used for differing standards, it can be used for several different ages.
