FC: The Life Cycle of a Butterfly
1: Here is and image of the life cycle of a butterfly!
2: The first stage in the cycle is the egg. If you look really close you can actually see the baby caterpillar growing! You usually find these on leaves.
5: The next stage in the butterfly life cycle is the larva, or the caterpillar. In this stage all the caterpillars like to do is eat.
6: The third stage in the butterfly life cycle is the pupa, or chrysalis. The caterpillar forms a pupa around itself and grows into a butterfly.
8: The final stage is the adult butterfly. This is where they learn to fly and reproduce to start the cycle over again.
