Butterfly Life Cycle Unit and Close Read And A Special Freebie!
Happy Spring everyone! I put this Butterfly Unit together this winter in excitement for our long awaited springtime! If you are teaching Butterflies this year with your little ones, this is a must have. My class LOVED doing all the activities and they sure learned a lot along the way. Click on any of the pictures to find this in my store, or follow this link to find out more!
Bring your Butterfly Life Cycle Unit to life with REAL pictures!
After a few days of learning, my kiddos were excited and ready to write about what they learned!
I keep the fun activities for Fun Friday, but this “Read and Illustrate” activity was still tightly aligned to the vocabulary they were learning during their butterfly investigations!
Don’t forget to download this freebie to give your students a visual they can manipulate! A Butterfly Life Cycle Wheel! Just have them cut and help them put a brad in the middle. My kids loved using this to help them with their writing! Click any of the pictures, or the link to learn more about this freebie!
Have students draw their own pictures, or choose the option with the black and white photos already in the boxes.
Then cut on the outside lines.
I used the color option so I didn’t have to color, because let’s face it…I am a teacher, and I am always pressed for time! The kids were so funny…they asked me how I color so well;)
