Introduction

HI THERE LITTLE CATERPILLARS!  This is your friend Dion the Butterfly!  Today we will explore the many stages that a little caterpillar goes through to become a beautiful butterfly.  Come fly with me as we travel together and learn about the joy of getting wings to fly as a BUTTERFLY!! 






The Task
Today you are going to figure out how I, Dion the Butterfly, became the beautiful butterfly that I am today.  I was not always this way, and it took me a long time to become a butterfly.  You are going to read a book, do a worksheet, and create a butterfly of your own that goes through all of the stages that I did.  Have fun!
 
 


The Process
In able for you to understand my life cylce, I have come up with four tasks for you to complete.  One task will be directed by your teacher, but the rest you will complete on your very own!
