The Life Cycle of a Butterfly

By jrl82
  • Egg

    The female butterfly attaches the egg to leaves, stems or other objects, usually leaving it near or on the intended caterpillar food. Insects need to feed their children too!
  • Caterpillar

    A caterpillar (or larva) is the long, worm-like stage of the butterfly. This stage is when the caterpillar eats and eats and eats! It also sheds its skin about 4 times to fit it's rapidly growing body.
  • Pulpa

    A caterpilar forms a cacoon, and at this stage it is called a pulpa. This is when the caterpillar tissues are broken down and the adult structures are formed.
  • Butterfly

    The pulpa has know turned into a butterfly! Now it can lay eggs and start the life cycle again. Now, using Timetoast, create a timeline for the life cycle of a different animal/insect, for example, frogs, cockroaches, etc.
