School And Kinder Butterfly Incursions

Let Butterfly Adventures bring the excitement of butterflies into your school’s classroom and early childhood centre!

The Butterfly Adventures Life Cycle Incursion Program has been developed by teachers and we have given hundreds of presentations from preschool to tertiary level. We combine elements of comedy and theatre (puppet & dress ups) to teach about the butterfly life cycle and metamorphosis, insect ecology, and morphology (body parts).

Our experienced and qualified educators will work with you to tailor a presentation to suit your needs and the age level of your students.  The students will become butterfly experts and learn words like “proboscis”, “cremaster” and “spiracles”.  They will talk about this life cycle incursion for weeks.

Everyone gets to see and feed a butterfly. Plenty of photo opportunities!

The presentations are linked to AusVELS levels from foundation to Level 6 and The Early Years Learning Framework for Early Childhood levels.

Upon booking you will receive a PDF file with pre- and post-incursion lesson plans and activities.
