This article discusses the different stages of the life cycles of butterflies and frogs.
This article discussed two excellent books about life cycles of frogs and butterflies. This is followed by a lesson plan associated with each book. Be aware that you would need to order butterfly larva and frogs from a science materials provider.

This article contains lesson plans for life cycles of living things using the 5 E inquiry lesson model, and a specific trade book is identified for each lesson. Included are helpful graphic organizers and the intentional aligning of the Common Core ELA standards in vocabulary acquisition and use (in grades K-3) and for integration of knowledge and ideas (in grades 4 – 6). The only downside of using these lesson plans revolves around the need to arrange for the timely delivery of live specimens for each of the two lessons. For grades K -3, the author used the larvae of butterflies, and for the grades 4 – 6, the author used frog eggs. The website resources provided at the end of the article are a bonus. Plus there is a URL that takes one to the NSTA website where the student activity sheets needed for the observation activities can be found and downloaded.
