This butterfly-shaped “flip-the-flap” booklet, is a quick, easy and super-fun way to teach the life cycle of a butterfly
I’ve included full-color patterns
so you can quickly & easily make a sample to share, as well as black & white
so children can make their own.
Simply run off the whole butterfly template on a variety of colors of construction paper.
There are 2-on-a-page to conserve paper and make the booklet “just the right size” for children.
Run off the “wing pages” on white copy paper. Children trim, fold the wings up, gluing just the thorax “tab” to the thorax of the base butterfly.
When everyone is done, read the booklet as a whole group to review concepts of print
, and solidify the butterfly's life cycle
in children’s minds, so that they are able to share this bit of science with their family.
I’ve also included blank templates
if you want your students to draw their own pictures.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy flipping and flapping as they learn the life cycle of a butterfly
