Butterfly Adventures in Brisbane
This illustrated booklet was developed to provide Information and Inspiration for environmental educators at kindergarten, prep and early primary school level, or for parents who are keen to let their children explore and value nature. The booklet covers general information about butterflies, their migration, larval host plants, threatened species, attending ants etc. There is a chapter on moths, and there are tips on how to attract butterflies to your garden. Ideas for role play are offered to allow children to 'experience' compound eyes, drinking with a proboscis, shedding the exoskeleton, and learning about pheromones. A Dreamtime story rounds off the learning opportunities provided in this booklet.
Some of the information is provided in individual chapters under Resources on this website. If you would like to download the entire booklet please click here.
