Transcript of The Caterpillar Life Cycle

The Life of a Butterfly Stage 2: Larva Butterfly larvae are called caterpillars. They eat leaves and grow very quickly by molting, or shedding their skin. When caterpillars are fully grown, they form into a pupa, also called a chrysalis. We can't see it from the outside, but inside the chrysalis, the caterpillar's body is changing into a butterfly. When the caterpillar is finished changing inside the chrysalis, it slowly leaves the chrysalis. It can't fly at first because its wings are soft and wrinkled. Within a few hours it will pump blood into its new wings and will be ready to fly. Stage 1: Egg Stage 3: Pupa Stage 4: Butterfly New eggs are laid. Butterfly eggs are laid on the leaves of plants. They are very small. If you look very closely, you can see a tiny caterpillar growing inside the egg! When it hatches it will eat leaves. The Life of a Butterfly By Melissa Stephenson California Science Standard Second Grade
Life Sciences 2b Students know the sequential stages of life cycles are different for different animals,
such as butterflies, frogs, and mice. Within a few hours of leaving the chrysalis, butterflies take flight to find a mate so they can lay eggs. They will live for about 1 month. For more information about butterflies, go see some in person at the Butterfly Pavilion in Los Angeles.
