Fluttering Through The Life Cycle Of A Butterfly
Looking for a few more ways to review or teach the life cycle of a butterfly?
I designed several with a bit of a different twist, that I think you and your students will enjoy.
My Many Colored Butterflies is an easy reader, that reviews color words at the same time sneaking in the life cycle.
Students trace and write the color words, as well as those new, rather impressive butterfly life cycle science terms.
Students color them in the matching color along with the picture.
I’ve also included a graphing extension and color word flashcards with this packet, as well as caterpillar and butterfly color cards.
Students can make an Itty Bitty color book, as well as play a Memory Matching game, where they match the color word to the corresponding caterpillar AND butterfly.

In the 49-page Catching On To Contractions, I’ve used a butterfly and caterpillar theme. I think your students will enjoy learning or reviewing contractions as they flutter through these skill sheets.

I’ve designed 3 Butterfly Life Cycle Posters to help reinforce the order of the butterfly’s life cycle.
You can simply color and hang up the poster to use as an anchor chart, or run it off and have younger students color their own.
Older students can color and label a chart, or color, cut and glue a chart, depending on what skill you want students to work on.

Finally, the traceable butterfly life cycle cards are a quick and easy way for students to review this science concept.
Children can color, cut and sequence the cycle independently, making an Itty Bitty booklet, or have them play “Speed” against a partner, and see who can sequence the cycle the quickest, as they say the names of the process out loud.
Print off the cards on two different colors and turn them into Memory Match games or play “I Have; Who Has?” with them.

I hope your students enjoy these activities, and that they always have the opportunity to fly through learning in an interesting way!
Be sure and flutter back tomorrow for still more tidbits and feel free to PIN anything on my site that you feel others might enjoy as well.
Thanks for stopping.
