Our Butterflies lesson plan introduces students to butterflies, including their lifecycle and parts. During this lesson, students are asked to color, cut out, and glue in the correct order the stages of the lifecycle of a butterfly, in order to demonstrate their understanding in a fun and interactive way. Students are also asked to match the information, such as “This stage lasts 5 to 10 days” with the butterfly stage it describes.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify and explain the stages for the life cycle of a butterfly, define related terms, and label the parts of an insect.
