Product Description
This packet will help your kindergarten and first grade students learn, understand, and practice using the science terms used when talking about a butterfly's life cycle. It also will provide you with resources to make your unit come to life. By integrating science and non-fiction into your language lessons, you not only create an enthusiasm in your students, but you can create the "hook" you need to engage even the most reluctant learners.

This packet includes many resources including: fully written out 5-E lesson plans, 3- part cards, pocket chart cards, (both featuring high quality pictures) student vocabulary books, center activities, posters, recording pages, science activities/projects, and so much more!

In using this pack, students will meet these objectives:
-Students will learn the different stages in a butterfly's life cycle.
