Parts of a Butterfly
While working as a group to build a large butterfly, students investigate the basic parts of an insect and learn how each part helps the butterfly survive. Our hands-on learning centres allow students to see various parts up close! Also suitable for Grade Two
Butterfly Life Cycle
Students discover the strategies used by butterflies to survive through the different stages of life (eg. caterpillars looking like bird droppings, chrysalides camouflaged like a leaf). The similarities and differences between two different kinds of insect life cycles are also investigated. Hands-on learning centres incorporating live specimens will help students explore various aspects of the life cycle up close (eg. wing scales, butterfly eggs, various caterpillars and pupae).
Monarch – An Incredible Journey
Students will learn the fascinating story of the Monarch butterfly – its life cycle, biology, migration, population status and conservation challenges. Students will discover how humans are affecting Monarch habitat and survival.
