I find that if I toss in a little craftiness into something I'm trying to teach my kiddos, I have their immediate attention, and they can't wait to get right down to business.
With that in mind, I thought it would be fun to design a butterfly "slider" as a quick, easy & fun visual to explain the life cycle of a butterfly.
The packet includes 3 realistic butterfly patterns, with more realistic graphics for the life cycle "slider", as well as 12 simpler butterfly patterns, which younger students will enjoy coloring.
The life cycle slider for those, has simpler graphics as well.
I've included full color slider options, so you can quickly and easily make an example to share, as well as 2 black line versions so your students can color their own.
When everyone is done, review the life cycle orally, then have students write the various stages on their "Here's What Happened" worksheet, which is a great way to practice ordinal numbers, transitions and sequencing.
I'm Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy "sliding" through the life cycle, with their butterfly pal.
