Learn the life cycle of a butterfly with this coloring handout!
The first stage of the butterfly life cycle is eggs, when an adult butterfly lays the eggs on a leaf. If you look closely enough, you’d be able to see the caterpillar inside!

The third stage of the butterfly life cycle is the chrysalis (or the cocoon). Once the caterpillar has grown enough, it encloses itself in a chrysalis. Inside the chrysalis, the caterpillar rapidly changes into a butterfly! This process is called metamorphosis and can take anywhere from one to three weeks.
Once the butterfly is ready to emerge, it breaks open the chrysalis and unfolds its wings. After getting used to its new wings, the butterfly is ready to take off and start the cycle all over again!
As spring blossoms, the caterpillars begin emerging from cocoons as butterflies! Using this handout, learn the definition of symmetry by coloring the wings of these butterflies. Then, color and cut … Continue reading Butterfly Symmetry Handout
