Writing 2 - Week 2

What’s a cycle?

The metamorphosis of Butterfly
A butterfly lays its eggs on a leaf. The worm-like larva grows inside the egg. When it is ready, the larva bites a small hole in the egg shell and wriggles its way into the world. After a few minutes, the newly hatched larva has its first meal -- the remains of its egg.

A caterpillar begins eating leaves as soon as it is hatched.

The caterpillar stops eating and looks for a safe place. It spins a button from the branch, forms, a J-shape, then forms a chrysalis.

In a few hours the chrysalis hardens. It is now the pupa stage. It will hang quietly for about two weeks.

The chrysalis splits open and the butterfly begins to come out. Its wings are still crumpled and wet.

The butterfly hangs on to the split chrysalis until its wings are dry.

When the butterfly's wings are dry and unfurled, it flies off to find food.

Life-cycle of Butterfly
Some animals go through a metamorphosis throughout their lives. Butterflies have eight stages of metamorphosis. First, a female butterfly lays its eggs on a leaf. The worm-like larva grows inside the egg. When it is ready, the larva chews a small hole in the egg shell and wriggles its way into the world. After a few minutes, the newly hatched larva has its first meal -the remains of its egg.
