Our Learning about Butterflies

During the last week of Term our reading has been based on the fantastic Go Zone newspaper for kids that came out a while ago - "Amazing Butterflies".

We have had a great time finding out about the parts of butterflies, the life cycle of butterflies and different species of butterflies.

Today we took all our butterfly knowledge and compared and contrasted butterflies to moths. We had to consult all of our fabulous books from in the library and our go zone to check (validate) what we thought before it went on our venn diagram. (Rachel has used Kidspiration to type up our ideas for the picture here)

We learnt that moths also have a proboscis (straw like tongue) and they have a similar life cycle to butterflies too!

Look at what Lochie learned about butterflies and moths and their similarities and differences:

Hello Room 9

You are very clever to use venn diagrams to compare moths and butterflies. Keep up the fantastic work.
