    • C.

      2

    • D.

      5

    Correct Answer
    B. 4
    Explanation
    A butterfly's lifecycle consists of four stages: egg, larva (caterpillar), pupa (chrysalis), and adult. The butterfly starts as an egg, then hatches into a caterpillar. The caterpillar then undergoes metamorphosis inside a chrysalis, where it transforms into an adult butterfly. Therefore, the correct answer is 4.

    What is the second stage of the lifecycle called?

    • A.

      Larva

    • B.

      Pupa

    • C.

      Egg

    • D.

      Butterfly

    Correct Answer
    A. Larva
    Explanation
    The correct answer is larva because in the lifecycle of an organism, the second stage is usually the larva stage. Larva is the developmental stage between the egg and the pupa stage. During this stage, the organism undergoes significant growth and transformation before transitioning into the next stage of its lifecycle.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    What is the scientific name for pupa?

    • A.

      Caterpillar

    • B.

      Larva

    • C.

      Organs

    • D.

      Chrysalis

    Correct Answer
    D. Chrysalis
    Explanation
    The scientific name for the pupa stage of an insect's life cycle is chrysalis. During this stage, the insect undergoes metamorphosis and transforms from a larva or caterpillar into its adult form. The chrysalis is a protective casing that encloses the developing insect and provides a safe environment for its transformation. This term is commonly used to refer to the pupa stage of butterflies and moths, but it can also be used for other insects that undergo a similar transformation process.

    Where do butterflies usually lay their eggs?

    • A.

      On a leaf

    • B.

      On dirt

    • C.

      Inside the cubby house

    • D.

      In a cacoon

    Correct Answer
    A. On a leaf
    Explanation
    Butterflies usually lay their eggs on a leaf because it provides a suitable environment for the eggs to hatch and for the caterpillars to feed on the leaf once they emerge. Leaves also offer protection from predators and provide a source of food for the growing caterpillars. This behavior ensures the survival and development of the butterfly life cycle.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    At what stage does the caterpillar turn into a pupa

      1st stage

    • D.

      2nd stage

    Correct Answer
    B. 3rd stage
    Explanation
    The caterpillar turns into a pupa in the 3rd stage. This is known as the pupal stage or the chrysalis stage. During this stage, the caterpillar undergoes metamorphosis and transforms into a pupa. The pupa is a resting stage where the caterpillar's body reorganizes and undergoes significant changes, ultimately leading to the emergence of an adult butterfly or moth.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    In the video, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, what did the caterpillar start looking for after it came out of the egg? 

    • A.

      Egg

    • C.

      Food

    • D.

      Wings

    Correct Answer
    C. Food
    Explanation
    After coming out of the egg, the caterpillar started looking for food. This is evident from the storyline of "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" where the caterpillar goes on a feeding spree, consuming various fruits and foods to satisfy its hunger.

    Rate this question:

    • C.

      Butterfly

    • D.

      Leaf

    Correct Answer
    A. Cacoon
    Explanation
    The hungry caterpillar built a cocoon around himself. A cocoon is a protective covering that the caterpillar creates using silk threads. Inside the cocoon, the caterpillar undergoes metamorphosis and transforms into a butterfly. The cocoon provides a safe environment for the caterpillar to undergo this transformation process. Therefore, the correct answer is cocoon.

Therefore, the correct answer is butterfly.

    Butterflies are known for their ability to fly gracefully. Despite their delicate appearance, they are capable of mastering the skill of flying in a relatively short amount of time. It takes butterflies approximately 3 to 4 hours to become proficient flyers. During this time, they undergo a process of trial and error, gradually improving their flight skills through practice and experience. This enables them to navigate their surroundings and fulfill their essential tasks such as finding food and mates.
