Instructions for Folding Lapbooks

This lapbook can be easily be modified to fit students PreK-1st grade. With a small amount of searching on the websites that I have used for my activities you could easily make it work for up to 3rd graders including some math activities.

Lapbook Activities:

Student can color and decorate First-School's butterfly pattern using markers, crayons, glitter, etc. This butterfly can be used to decorate the front of the lapbook.

Student can color, cut, glue, and write in First-School's "My First Letter C Book" (C is for...Caterpillar)

AND First-School's "My First Letter B Book" (B is for...Butterfly)

Use the Enchanted Learning's butterfly life cycle "label me" to learn about the life cyle.

Then, the student can color and cut-out Enchanted Learning's butterfly life cycle sequencing cards. These cards can be mixed up and then have the student put them in the correct order. Make a pocket for the lapbook to hold the cards.

Learn about and label Enchanted Learning's parts of the butterfly worksheet. It can also be colored.

Make a coloring book that will fit in the lapbook by shrinking the following images to 50% and stapling them together.
Caterpillar
Chrysalis
Butterfly

Additional Activities:

You can order a butterfly "cage" and live caterpillars at Amazon.com. You get to watch the entire butterfly life cycle in real life from caterpillar to pupa to butterfly! You can set the butterflies free outside or keep them in the cage.

Bake and decorate a butterfly shaped cake.
