Monarch Magic! Butterfly Activities & Nature Discoveries
1998. More than 100 full-color photos with easy-to-follow text lets students experience the Monarch's complete life cycle and metamorphosis, from tiny egg to crawling caterpillar to magical chrysalis and emerging butterfly. Children learn by doing as they raise and release butterflies, chart the Monarch's migration with other children across North America, create pom-pom caterpillars to scale, investigate nature's symmetry, and write a cater-poem. Children will join in the fight to save the Monarch's habitat by planting a butterfly garden. They will also grow milkweed from seeds to help preserve the Monarch caterpillar's only food source and attract butterflies to their homes. 96 pages, soft cover, full-color photographs and illustrations. Ages 4-12.
