Model a butterfly's life cycle with Silk Clay


Create a model version of a butterfly's life cycle yourself. At the same time, learn how a butterfly starts out as a small egg then grows into a caterpillar that wraps itself in a chrysalis and eventually becomes a beautiful butterfly.

  This idea teaches children about UN Sustainable Development Goal 15, which aims to protect, restore and support the sustainable use of animal and plant life. To preserve life on land, we must promote sustainable forestry and take care of plants and animals.
