Then, they transfer the chrysalis into a larger habitat in which the adult has room to emerge. The activity supports 3-dimensional learning and builds toward the following:

  • NGSS Scientific and Engineering Practice: Asking Questions; Planning and Carrying Out Investigations
  • NGSS Core Idea: Life Science 1: From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes; Life Science 3: Heredity: Inheritance and Variation of Traits
