My class got a butterfly kit and raised and nurtured them through their metamorphosis. Along the way we took photos which I included in this PowerPoint. I had them keep an observation journal and at each stage gave them diagrams to draw in their journal and vocabulary and notes about each stage also. On one of the slides we even captured one of the pupas shaking--a natural defense against predators! This is a great Powerpoint to use if you are doing your own kit, and even if you just want to teach about the cycle using photos! Several slides include activities for the students including writing a haiku or acrostic and a summary of the life cycle.
