#87. Butterfly unit-----lesson ideas

Science, level: Elementary
Posted by Lauren Mellone ().
Materials Required: raw pasta

You can use pasta to show the development of a butterfly. Use cavatelli for the caterpillar, small circles for the eggs, shells for the chrysalis and bow ties for the butterfly.

For example, on the leaf or hanging from the leaf.
