  1. The Life Cycle of a Butterfly • What did you learn in your exploration?  Which parts of the life cycle are you unsure about? 4

  2. Stage 1: Eggs In some cases, I only ‘stick’ around for approximately 4 – 7 days. • Mother butterfly lays eggs on plant • Sets in place with glue-like substance • Usually 100-300 eggs laid • Butterfly chooses plant carefully, as caterpillars will later feast on it 5 7 10;5 11

  4. I am also called a ‘pupa’ Stage 3: Chrysalis 7 • Caterpillar hangs from a branch and spins a chrysalis around itself • Chrysalis made of silk material • Butterfly organs forming inside • Stage can last days/weeks/months 10 5 13

  5. Stage 4: Butterfly • Butterfly emerges • Fluid in abdomen acts like air in a balloon to inflate wings • Wings dry before taking flight • Eats flower nectar • After mating, will search for perfect plant to lay eggs • Life cycle begins again 7 6 3 7 14
