Monarch Butterfly Life Cycle Unit Study – Christ the Sanctifier

This listing is for a DIGITAL DOWNLOADABLE product.

One of the most remarkable creatures in Creation, the Monarch Butterfly Life Cycle is a picture of Christ’s power! We have created a beautiful Spring morning time activity that points kids to Christ and uses awesome resources to investigate God’s Creation together! The Monarch Butterfly Life Cycle unit focuses on Biblical truths such as transformation through sanctification, the butterfly’s metamorphosis as a picture of our new life in Christ, and the butterfly’s obedience in migration in relation to Israel’s (and our own) rebellion and lack of repentance.

Easy, Powerful, Meaningful

Phrased in six short, simple lessons which accompany a Scripture passage and memory verse, spend your precious Springtime morning hours together doing something that is wholesome and meaningful for your little one created in Christ’s image.

Literature-Based and Hands-On Learning

Using the gorgeous picture book Monarch Butterfly by Gail Gibbons (not included), enjoy Literature-Based learning with vibrant illustrations and short, informative text. Your family reads a few easy pages with each lesson! Scheduled Scripture passages and memory verses amplify the reading and make spiritual application to the natural learning.

Known and trusted company Insect Lore provides Butterfly Exploration on your timeline! This kit (not included) contains all you need to raise your own painted lady butterflies, and includes a pre-paid voucher to get your live caterpillars when it makes the most sense for you. This way, you can get your curriculum in line, order your book and plan out your own schedule. The Insect Lore Kit cycle takes approximately 3 weeks. Our curriculum encompasses 6 lessons. You can choose to do one per week and start your caterpillars on week 4, or you can do 2 lessons/week and start your caterpillars at the beginning (you will want to try and line up fairly closely the end of the cycle and the end of the curriculum, as it ends with the release of your butterflies while learning about how Christ has set us free!) *Pro Tip: We use this curriculum in the weeks heading up to Easter for a wonderful send-off into the Holiday and Spring Break!*

*Note: Please check shipping restrictions in your area before purchasing. Insect Lore has guidelines on when caterpillars can be shipped due to temperature, and some states have additional restrictions. Also, read up on Insect Lore’s terms and guarantees to learn about their policies and promises (we have had great luck with them! But they are live insects.)
