Integrating your science studies about the butterfly life cycle into your literacy and math time will be easy with this mega pack of butterfly activities for kindergarten and first grade. Over 90 pages of activities for kids!
- The pack is separated into two sections for ease of printing: centers/printables.
- Each activity includes a detailed teacher instruction/suggestion page.
- Some materials, such as the posters, can be used for several activities such as flash cards, write the room and more. You can either print the materials multiple times or use the pieces at different times for the various activities. I did not duplicate the multi-use pages in order to save on file size.
- Most centers include assessment sheets for students to demonstrate their understanding of each activity.
