Life Cycle of a Butterfly: Students will learn about the life butterfly life cycle and butterfly adaptations through this close reading unit. This resource provides you with a complete unit for studying the Life Cycle of a Butterfly.
This unit includes:
- an observation book
- butterfly life cycle wheel
- a four-page nonfiction passage
- response pages
- 15 interactive notebook flaps and folds
- Text-Dependent Comprehension pages
- Writing Prompts
- a True False Sort
- a life cycle sort.
Students will be motivated to read to learn all about these interesting insects and their life cycles and adaptations.
This unit is aligned with CCSS on reading and writing the informational text for 3rd grade and 4th grade. It is also aligned with NGSS Life Science standards for 3rd Grade and 4th grade. Students will love reading and learning about the butterfly life cycle.
This is a huge integrated unit. If all the pages are used, it would take about three weeks to complete…long enough to hatch some painted lady butterflies in your classroom (21 days). However, you do not need live insects to use this unit.
