The worksheet includes 2 pages of short answer questions and a 2 page data log to record the growth of the caterpillars. You will be emailed a link to the password protected educational material.
This mini-curriculum is designed for any aged learner. The slideshow and worksheet will take about 20-30 minutes to complete while the data table is more long term.
Want to grow more butterflies?! Order a Cup-O-Caterpillars now! This is the cup that is provided in the kit.
MOST ORDERS ARE FULFILLED WITHIN 1-2 DAYS! Although, some will take up to 7 days. If your order will take more than 4 days to fulfill, you will be contacted.
If you require shipping-- we only ship before Wednesdays to ensure the caterpillars are not in the box over the weekend. If you order on Wednesday (after 12pm), Thursday, or Friday, your order will be shipped the following Monday.
Unfortunately, some caterpillars will die when shipping. Expect 80% of your caterpillars to survive and thrive! We will not replace any dead caterpillars simply due to the reality of some not surviving.
