There are more great resources (Montessori-inspired and all types) than I could list here. I have a Caterpillar-Butterfly Pinterest board with many more activities.
A caterpillar-butterfly unit is a wonderful unit for spring or summer. Have fun! :)




What a great idea, a Pinterest Board with just Butterflys, I am off to pin now...bye
