This kit, previously titled Wisconsin Fast Plants® Life in Balance: Plants and Butterfly Kit, tracks the tandem life cycles of petite, quick-growing Brassica plants and their hardy, natural predator, Pieris rapae, so students can observe dynamic interactions that are impossible to ignore. By exploring the interaction and development of plant and butterfly, students learn how real scientific investigations work. In this activity, students care for and observe 2 organisms throughout their brief life cycles of 35 to 40 days.
