Working through the butterfly life cycle with your kinders? We, of course, suggest having your kiddos create their own life cycle models and, if you have the resources/space, actually providing your kinders with the opportunity to watch the process unfold by creating a caterpillar observation center in the classroom - but we also recommend checking out this awesome chrysalis demonstration found over at Overall Success!

While you'll never be able to fully simulate what it feels like, Pam Greening and her kiddos had a blast creating toilet paper cocoons, feeling how tight and secure a chrysalis is, and finding out what it was like to break out of one!

What a fun, hands-on experience! For this activity and lots of other great spring lesson ideas, be sure to visit Overall Success!
