Life Cycle of a Butterfly

By: Caitlyn and Hannah

Life cycle

The life cycle of the butterfly starts out as an egg. Next, a caterpillar or larva comes out of the egg! Then, the caterpillar eats a lot. After that,the caterpillar forms a chrysalis or pupa. Finally, after about a week the adult butterfly emerges from the chrysalis or pupa.

Changes of the larva

First, the larva eats medium or leaves. Then, the larva gets bigger. When it has eaten a lot after about a week, it forms a pupa or chrysalis. After some days, the butterfly emerges from the chrysalis or pupa. Finally, the butterfly drys it's wings and flies away to Mexico!

What living things need to survive

Living things need food, water, and shelter. They need it to to survive because if they don't have these things they won't live.
