Butterfly Science Ideas
Make this mystery display to
introduce the concept of metamorphosis.
Divide a bulletin board with
the title "Monarch Metamorphosis" into four sections.
Then mount a
question mark cutout in each space. Bring in caterpillars for
children to observe; then every few days replace a question mark
of the labeled stages of metamorphosis as directed below:
Box 1: Display a paper leaf and half of a Styrofoam egg shape.
Box 2: Display a paper leaf and half of a painted cardboard
Box 3: Display a paper leaf and a chrysalis cut from paper.
Box 4: Have children decorate butterfly cutouts to place in
the last box.
Make caterpillar homes by
filling a clear plastic jar with leaves & twigs.
Cover the top with a piece of netting or nylon stocking.
