Teachers' Guide: Activity Summary:
Grizzled Skipper

This activity focuses on the life cycle of a butterfly found on the Common, that children may not be familiar with. A PowerPoint presentation introduces the species to the children and explains the main parts of the lifecycle. Three activity sheets are available to follow this up.

One is a simple matching activity of a simple text to the life cycle pictures of the grizzled skipper (suitable for upper KS 1). The second and third activities involve choosing the appropriate descriptions, from a text, to place on a life cycle diagram. (Suitable for KS 2)
