Let’s learn about how I came to life!
What do you already know about the life of a Butterfly?
First you will find me laying on a leaf. Do not flick me off! But you may come back in just a week. I promise I will hatch into something new!
Hey there! I am a caterpillar but some call me Larva. You may pet me I am fuzzy! But please leave me here since leaves are my source of food. Come back soon and I will be hiding!
Now I am hiding in my Pupa. I will be back in 15 days! Please come back to see my wings!
Im glad your back, here I am! My name is Betty the Butterfly. I have wings so I can fly now!
Now let’s watch a video learning more about me in real life!
- What is the first stage of a Butterfly life cycle?
- Where do Butterflies live before they have wings?
- How many stages are in the life cycle of a butterfly?
- Which is your favorite part of Bettys life cycle?
I made a cool song for you all to sing. I am going to explore the sky. Enjoy!
Let’s grow our own Butterfly!
1: Buy a life cycle kit which comes with all ingredients
2: Watch your caterpillars through the container until they create a “J” shape. There is no need to feed them as the container already has their food!
3: Once they are in a J shape, transfer them to their pop up net.
4: Watch them turn into cocoons.
5: The cocoons will start to open and here comes the Butterfly wings!
6: Put sugar and water in a container on the bottom of the net.
7: In just a few days you will have Butterflies flying in the net!
8: Have a butterfly release party!
