Hands-on learning labs will offer your child the closest view of butterflies and an opportunity to observe and study them over a longer period of time. Insect Lore’s butterfly garden is a complete kit with larve (Painted Lady butterflies) and butterfly cage for close observation.
Students may also collect Monarch caterpillars from your butterfly garden (plant milkweed for best results) and observe them indoors. Be sure to offer the caterpillars an abundance of fresh milkweed daily. Students may also learn how to tell the sex of a Monarch butterfly and create a chart of the butterflies they release.
