Explaining life cycles (butterflies)



An explanatory video and a classroom's story of their science project combine with worksheets and simple images to provide a multi sensory lesson allowing students to piece together the life cycle of a butterfly. Students can also design and/or create their own safe, natural shelter for a butterfly cocoon to form in.
