Butterfly Education and Awareness Day

6th June 2020

Event Overview

Get outside and spot some brilliant butterflies today!

This day gives the opportunity to use a cross-curricular approach to lesson ideas all based around our fluttery friends.

Why not:

  • study a butterfly’s life cycle
  • learn the word butterfly in several different languages
  • find out if there is a state butterfly where you live and study its habits
  • raise a butterfly at home or in the classroom
  • celebrate the end of the school year by releasing butterflies or better still plant a butterfly garden/habitat?

This year, 2020, is the 10th annual Butterfly Education and Awareness Day (BEAD) with the creation of a international day to celebrate butterflies we will promote the importance and joy of butterfly gardening and habitat creation/restoration.

Aesthetically pleasing, important pollinators, and excellent teachers of metamorphosis, the butterfly can be celebrated through a variety of activities.
