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
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
I'm Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy "sliding" through the life cycle
, with their butterfly
