Butterflies are a very popular unit study topic in both the classroom and for homeschoolers. Here are some of my favourite resources surrounding monarch butterflies and how you can implement a monarch mini-unit.
I created this lapbook to supplement student’s study of monarch butterflies. Students learn about the lifecycle, diet, anatomy, and migration of monarch butterflies in an interactive format. If you are interested in using this lapbook as part of your mini-unit you can get it here.

- monarch migration and preservation
- monarch lifecycle
(As always please ensure you view videos prior to your students to ensure that there are no inappropriate advertisements. If a link is broken please let me know so I can fix it).
I have a brief five day mini-unit plan that goes through the lapbook and additional activities day by day. You can find it here.
