  • I am a Childminder and I was looking for a similar doc to do an activity for what we learned about the butterfly's life cycle and when I have searched on Twinkl using the "butterfly's life cycle" the engine search didn't show me this doc. Shame it could have been very useful to support our learning at that time.

  • I wish I had had these when I was working in Year 2! It was so hard to find anything as lovely as this then.

    , Apr 21st
A very useful resource when teaching children about the life cycle of a butterfly. Simply choose which life cycle format you prefer and the children can cut out the pictures and put them in order. A great activity to encourage discussion about the different stages. If you want to differentiate the task, why not ask the children to label the different stages?

Why not also check out our lovely butterfly life resources?
