Reflection: Rigor Life Cycle of the Butterfly-Fourth Phase - Section 2: Engage


This is a beautiful book, and a terrific resource, but I found the text to be too long for the lesson. The next time I teach this lesson, I will not read the entire book. I would read the section only pertaining to the chrysalis.  I would explain to the students that I want to share a portion of a book with them that I think they might find very interesting.  Specifically the section that explains how butterflies are important to the ecosystem.
