a butterfly's life cycle. Compare and contrast
caterpillars to adults. Create a booklet
or a spinner
choosing from color images, blackline images for students to color, or a blank booklet for a capable student for illustrate. The booklet and the spinner are included with BOTH English text and Spanish text.
Learn about producers, consumers, and food chains. Create a model of a butterfly's chain
to show how energy moves from the Sun through plants to a butterfly to a bird.
Read a text
for both topics. Three reading levels in English and two levels in Spanish make it easy to differentiate for your students. Do you have a student who struggles with reading? There are recordings of all five versions of both texts included just for that student!
Choose from four different assessments
for each topic: quick, paper-and-pencli that require minimal language skills, suggestions for struggling students, and challenges for capable students.
