Butterfly word cards
Science | Butterflies
Butterfly word cards is a set of forty butterfly-related words that supports development of scientific language, both oral and written, in early childhood classrooms.
The resource is available in three formats for printing choice, and includes blank cards for adding your own words.
When children are learning about insects or minibeasts in their science biology lessons, the butterfly word cards are a great tool for reference, particularly if observing the life stages of butterflies in the classroom.
The resource can be used to:
- create a butterfly word wall
- add labels to a butterfly display
- teach irregular plurals; for example, larvae, pupae, ocellii
- teach syllabification as an aid to reading; for example, but-ter-fly
- explain compound words
as well as a reference for writing and for a variety of other activities suggested in the resource.
