Butterfly Life Cycle Poem
Teeny-tiny eggs you see,
Life cycle of a butterfly:
During its lifetime, a butterfly goes through a complete metamorphosis.
It starts as an egg which hatches into the larval form- the caterpillar.
The caterpillar eats and grows until it has enough energy to move into its pupal stage- making a chrysalis.
Inside the chrysalis, the caterpillar goes through its metamorphosis and eventually emerges as a butterfly.
The butterfly mates and lays new eggs to start the life cycle over again.
