Butterfly Life cycle
Some of you have already had a go at making a butterfly life cycle diagram. But just in case you didn’t get chance, here is work sheet to help. You can watch Maddie explain how it works on iPlayer on the link below.
A butterfly has a very exciting life cycle, but it’s interesting to find out how other animals start their lives. Use this sheet to help you learn what we call baby farm animals. You could add to it by thinking of other animals and finding out what we call their babies… also do they come from eggs, or out of their mummy’s tummy?
