These Carolina® butterfly kits make keeping live butterflies simple, fun, and affordable. Each kit comes with everything you need to raise painted lady butterflies from larvae to adults - including our improved freestanding mesh Butterfly Sanctuary. It's simple to set up, easy to clean, great for viewing, and collapses for convenient storage.

You can also enhance your butterfly classroom experience with the V-Scope Explorer: Butterfly Life Cycle Interactive Activity (item #522464). Each kit includes 1 year of FREE single-teacher license access to butterfly videos and images that can be used with interactive whiteboards and teacher presentation stations.

The Demo Kit contains 10 larvae and enough food to last from metamorphosis to chrysalis. Also includes butterfly sanctuary, instruction book, cotton wick, and foam rubber flower. The Classroom Kit allows students to work hands-on with living butterflies. From a culture cup that contains 33 larvae and food, each student (or pair of students) transfers a larva and food to its own culture vessel, creating an individual chamber for observation. The Classroom Kit Refill includes 33 to 35 larvae, culture medium, 33 culture vessels with lids, filter paper, and 2 spatulas.

 
 
 
 
Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEAUTIFUL PAINTED LADIES Our 2nd grade team has been ordering the Painted Ladies caterpillars for years. Our success rate is really high! Of course, when a new teacher arrives there may be a few bumps, but we experienced teachers have 100% success. LOVE THIS PROJECT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Educational and Fun...a great combination! I purchased this kit for my grandson's Science teacher (2nd grade) when I learned that they were studying insects and metamorphosis. Everything went according to plan, and the children were enthralled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Butterflies Kit and Owl Pellets Kit I teach a Kinder., 1st grade, 2nd grade class. One of my 1st graders asked if we could dissect owl pellets after reading a non-fiction story about owls. I ordered the kit with some hesitation, because my students are so young. They loved it and learned a great deal! After that success, I ordered the Butterfly kit with the Mallow plant. They are learning so much and so engaged!! When I learned that our school site has money to spend on supplementary curriculum, I made a list of requests for various science kits for next year. I am so excited! Next year's science projects will be wonderful!! Susan

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Science project I teach special needs students and this was their first experience. The enjoyed raising thier caterpillars. They were estatic about seeing their caterpillars turn to butterflies. Almost every one of them survived and we have a real butterfly house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect homeschool activity We loved watching the whole cycle- caterpillar to butterfly, and then our butterflies mated and we got more caterpillars! Allowed for some fantastic lessons about life for my kids. Only difficult part was our cat wanted to get the butterflies so we had a hard time finding a good place in our home to keep them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME I purchased this at the end of the year, and I was unsure if I had enough school days for the growth cycle. I called customer service and they were INCREDIBLY helpful. They knew the answer to all my questions, and I ultimately had just enough time. I ordered the kit that should have had around 30 caterpillars, (it arrived early!) but we received nearly double that!!! I figured we would lose a lot (and that's why we received so many), but pretty much all of them formed cocoons and emerged. My kids loved this. Will be ordering again next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful caterpillars I have done these many times in kindergarten but now am using them in my garden club. I received many more caterpillars than i expected which , as wonderful as that is, means I probably do not have enough food for the extras. Hopefully some of the extras will survive to chrysalis. I know that most of the others will survive - great product.
