The Lifecycle of the Butterfly

First graders study the characteristics of butterflies and examine their life cycle in this unit of six lessons. They examine the anatomy of the butterfly, learn the associated vocabulary, and watch the metamorphosis of the caterpillar into a butterfly as they raise the caterpillar larvae. As they watch the metamorphosis, they write a daily journal entry.
