In-Class Caterpillar Research Lab / Observation Logs & Math Integration

Create one or two caterpillar enclosures and watch the life cycle of a butterfly unfold before your eyes. (1) Students kept a daily science observation log of the changes that took place in our caterpillar enclosures. (2) Measure and compare two the growth of two caterpillars using the bar graph sample created. This also allows students to see how long a caterpillar lives before going into chrysalis form. (3) Once the caterpillars begin the metamorphosis process and go into chrysalis form, make a calendar to draw images of the daily changes and to see how long the metamorphosis process takes place. (4) Teach the life cycle of the Monarch butterfly and have students create a nonfiction, informative writing piece following all the elements of the writing process. (5) Peer Editing Marks and Checklist

Monarch Waystation & Butterfly Garden Study

Students researched the plants that were local to our community that hosted native butterflies as well as plants that provided the nectar to feed the butterflies. Here you will find online resources to research plants and butterflies, sample worksheets to gather and present information, and plans to assist in building your own butterfly garden and Monarch Waystation.
