This curriculum and guide contains lessons, each with exercises and activities, a science-based word bank and glossary, and Missouri content standards and descriptions. This is a centers-based curriculum intended to be used in conjunction with a science center such as the Butterfly Palace or Butterfly House. There are three major themes in this curriculum: The Life Cycle of Butterflies, Butterfly Habitats, and Adaptations for the Units. This curriculum is unique in that each lesson can serve as a stand alone which can be taught in a classroom whether home based, or school based and does not require sequencing with the other lessons in this curriculum. Each lesson and activity will include specific objectives that will outline a measurable goal.
