The butterfly unit goes hand in hand with the other animal units studies (reptiles, amphibians, birds etc) as well as the lifecycles unit. The butterfly lifecycle is covered in detail in this unit as are insect body parts and specifically butterfly body parts. Migration is studied and the students can trace the path of the monarch butterfly as they learn all about their drive to fly.
A spectacular unit with awesome visuals and interactivities. They WILL understand butterflies when they are done - and they will love every minute they spent learning it!
