Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent resource for the classroom. I ordered 5 butterfly larvae with a prepaid coupon. The product arrived on time in good shape. The larvae were all alive. The directions for taking care of the product were user friendly and easy to understand. The students love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest Pre k Science unit! I purchased this product for my pre k classroom, and I order the prepaid certificates every year. The children absolutely love to come in each day to watch the butterfly life cycle (I read Eric Carle's Hungry Caterpillar ). I love that you can have them shipped on a specific date to align with lesson plans. The day of release is one of the highlights of pre k.! The children name the butterflies before we set them free! I've had many parents order them as gifts for their children to enjoy at home! I've even invited the families to join us for this special event! Highly recommended!!!!! I look forward to purchasing for my grandchildren (their reaction to the wonder of nature is priceless!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Butterflies in the Classroom After using this in my classroom and having success with it, I purchased it for my nephews who are extremely excited with it. I found the video on the webiste very helpful, but did not find it until I already had hatched the butterflies. It was difficult to find for some reason. I found it at home. When I tried to find it again so the kids in class could see what we did and should have done, I couldn't locate where I had found it at home! Nonetheless, it was an excellent project and I intend to do it again for summer school kids!

Butterflies Color Your Students' World

  • See the complete life cycle in just a few weeks

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.
