SCIENCE: Acting out the Butterfly life cycle.

Music and Movement
Making learning fun!!
I lay my eggs on a big green leaf.
My butterfly larva begin to eat their way out of their egg shell. Of course my hungry caterpillars pretend to eat and eat and eat.
Then they get ready, by hanging upside down "hanging J" and shed one last time. They are now in their chrysalis. When I give them the cue the begin to slowly move and make their way out flapping their wet small wings (chicken wings). after a while their wings are "dry" and full size. I let them fly around looking for flowers to drink some nectar.

This is such a fun way to review the butterfly cycle. I've done this inside the classroom as well as outdoors. They love it!
