Address Multiple Life Science Topics

Painted lady butterflies are appropriate for all grade levels but especially effective for grades K–8. They enable students to observe complete metamorphosis, from caterpillar to chrysalis to adult butterfly. Students can then compare the butterfly life cycle to that of other animals or investigate how temperature affects insect development time. General life science topics can be addressed as well, including how form fits function and what organisms need to survive.
