Thank you very much for your interest in this book. This work is aimed at early learners to much older learners within the elementary school age group. Some of the best ways for our children to learn is by play and interaction. Teaching them about insects is a fun and exciting way for you to encompass a variety of subjects into your theme. Math activities can include symmetry and counting.  Grammar and vocabulary exercises are relatively simple to coordinate; 

• Butterfly crafts can be used as an extension lesson or to make gifts for that special person, or to create a fantastically whimsical outfit;

• Social studies can include why people or situations are likened to butterflies, caterpillars or moths;

• Drama and the arts can be anything relating to watching animated (or documentary) movies, drawing, photography as well as dressing up;

• Life skills can include planning and hands-on interaction for a butterfly-themed party;

• Literature Arts will include reading and writing poetry or books or a complete literature unit study.

We don't forget of course the fact that nature and science will form the basis for your very first butterfly study. Extensions can include geography i.e. where do those butterflies come from? Historically one could venture into which cultures or societies and in which era were butterflies used as symbols, and what did they symbolize.

Critical thinking skills and revision for older or younger students can include cryptic puzzles, wordsearches, crossword puzzles and a variety of questions and answers, true or false. Younger children would love coloring pages, mazes and drawing.

There are many ways to include butterflies into your child's classroom. On this page I share with you a few of the ideas we have tried or would like to try. I do hope you enjoy them, and find some useful resources!

The unit is written in US English and is A4 size. Please adjust your printer settings.

Scanned image
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
