This activity (on page 3 of the PDF) has learners create models of butterfly wings.
This activity is a fun way to show two stages in a Monarch butterfly's life cycle. Learners will create an optical illusion that can be flipped from caterpillar to butterfly.
In this activity, learners make a camouflaged butterfly to hide outside for others to find.
In this activity (on the left side of page 5, continued on the right side of page 4 of the PDF), learners make models of colorful butterflies.
In this activity, learners investigate balance and symmetry by designing a symmetrical butterfly, using a paper cutout.
Ivy Rutzky, a scientific assistant at the American Museum of Natural History, introduces an activity where learners create a scientific illustration of a monarch butterfly.
In this two-part activity about the connection between the lupine plant and butterflies, learners first read "Miss Rumphius," a storybook about lupine by Barbara Cooney.
In this activity, learners investigate how some butterfly wings get their color.
In this activity, learners explore how nanosized structures can create brilliant color.
The Butterflies in Space Teacher's Guide uses "life in space" to encourage learners to conduct their own open-ended scientific investigations.
As a long-term project, you can rear monarch butterflies at home or in a classroom.
This is an activity (located on page 3 of the PDF under Butterfly Wings Activity) about how visible light is affected by tiny nanoscale structures, producing iridescence on butterfly wings, soap bubbl
In this craft-based activity, learners make DNA sequence bracelets that carry the code of an organism such as a human, trout, chimpanzee or butterfly.
This is a quick activity (on page 2 of the PDF under Butterfly Wings Activity) that illustrates how nanoscale structures, so small they're practically invisible, can produce visible/colorful effects.
In this activity, learners will explore the insect life cycle by making a model.
In this activity, learners will build a design and build a place for pollinators to drink from.
In this activity, learners assemble large cubes to make nano-related images. Learners discover how different objects are related to nanoscience and nanotechnology.
Learners construct a bracelet containing two strands of beads, which represents a double strand of DNA that codes for a gene. They match beads to the bases in a section of a chimp's DNA code.
In this activity, learners create a cool floating animal using the science of magnetism. Learners discover what happens when a piece of magnetic metal enters a magnet's field.
In this activity, learners use information gathered from a variety of sources to design and make their own insect.
