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. I had my class glue them onto a piece of constructiuon paper folded into 4 parts. They drew in arrows for the life cycle and they also drew where that particular stage takes place. For example, on the leaf or hanging from the leaf.
