Label the lifecycle of a butterfly in this printable worksheet!

Read the definitions then label the butterfly life cycle diagram.
Butterflies undergo complete metamorphosis. The larva (caterpillar) hatches from an egg that the female usually lays on the underside of leaves.

After mating, the female lays eggs and the cycle begins again.

You may need to adjust the scale in the print settings. When you choose print in your browser (or whatever program you use to print PDFs), most should have an option to "Scale to Fit" (or "Fit to Printable Area"), but if not, you can manually put in a percentage like "95%" until it displays correctly.
