This Carolina® butterfly kit makes keeping live butterflies simple, fun, and affordable. The Classroom Kit comes with everything you need to raise painted lady butterflies from larvae to adults - including our improved freestanding mesh Butterfly Sanctuary. It's simple to set up, easy to clean, great for viewing, and collapses for convenient storage. The kit allows students to work hands-on with living butterflies. From a culture cup that contains 33 larvae and food, each student (or pair of students) transfers a larva and food to its own culture vessel, creating an individual chamber for observation.

You can also enhance your butterfly classroom experience with the V-Scope Explorer: Butterfly Life Cycle Interactive Activity (item #522464). Each kit includes 1 year of FREE single-teacher license access to butterfly videos and images that can be used with interactive whiteboards and teacher presentation stations.
