Building a Butterfly Habitat

Updated: Oct 21, 2019

This outdoor lesson challenges students to create a butterfly habitat that meets the animal’s basic needs (e.g., air, water, food, and shelter) using loose parts. This type of experiential learning encourages creativity as students re-imagine everyday objects and transform them into something new. While students are guided to follow safety procedures when handling loose parts, there is no one right way to use these materials.


This Lesson Plan Includes:

  • Learning Objectives

  • Curriculum Connections

  • Assessment for Learning, Checking for Understanding, Success Criteria & Feedback

  • Minds On, Action, Consolidation learning activities
