This is an activity where learners will compare the different metamorphosis stages of amphibians.
Butterfly Life Cycle
In this activity, learners will explore the insect life cycle by making a model.
Life in a NutshellAdd to list Details
In this multi-faceted game (on pages 25-35), learners recreate what happens to creatures in the Brazilian rain forest as they grow from egg to adult—especially those that use fallen, empty Brazil nut
Composting: A Scientific Investigation
In this activity, learners conduct a scientific investigation involving decomposition and discover that the life cycle of trash is affected by its organic or inorganic nature.
Traveling TapewormAdd to list Details
In this "gross" activity (on pages 34-46), learners make a life-size model of a human digestive tract, and follow the life of a beef tapeworm as it makes its way through.
Hungry as a CaterpillarAdd to list Details
In this indoor and outdoor activity, learners discover that insects grow and develop as do all living things, going through a process known as complete metamorphosis.
The Blue Crab's Chesapeake Journey
In this data collection activity about crabs, learners use data from the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) trawl survey to determine the areas of the Chesapeake Bay that are being used by bl
In this botany activity, learners will create an experiment about seed germination. This activity gives students an opportunity to explore how seeds germinate and react to surrounding conditions.
In this math lesson, learners record and graph plant growth and interpret data. Learners plant seeds, and once the seeds sprout, record the change in height of the plants for several days.
Pet Parasite DetectiveAdd to list Details
This activity (on pages 19-25) is about fleas and ticks, which are common pet parasites.
Lupine and ButterfliesAdd to list Details
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 two-part activity, learners compare and contrast a variety of life cycles to better understand different organisms and how they develop.
Butterflies in Space
The Butterflies in Space Teacher's Guide uses "life in space" to encourage learners to conduct their own open-ended scientific investigations.
What is the optimal environment for hatching brine shrimp? Using a scaffold, learners design and conduct experiments testing the effect of a single abiotic factor on brine shrimp cyst hatch rate.
