DIY Butterfly Feeder

Ages 5-10

Butterflies support our ecosystem and help pollinate plants! This lesson breaks down the butterfly pollination process, inviting students to observe how butterflies move pollen between plants. Students will create a butterfly feeder to encourage butterflies to visit their homes, while observing any other species it may attract. For an introduction to butterflies, check out our STEM Activity of the Week: Life of a Butterfly.
