Butterfly, butterfly, laying lots of eggs.
-Butterflies are flying insects with long, scaly wings.
-A butterfly has four wings, six legs, a head, a thorax (body or chest), and an abdomen (the tail end).
-Butterflies start as caterpillars, shed their skin, transform into a chrysalis, and emerge as a butterfly. Metamorphosis is the change of the form or structure of an animal as it grows and matures.
|-Moths and butterflies are insects. When a butterfly or moth egg hatches, a tiny caterpillar crawls out. A caterpillars job is to eat a lot so it will grow into a butterfly.|
