I pulled together some ideas for a teacher just recently about butterflies.
Here are some links that you (and others) might be interested in using:

Also, if you have United Streaming (or other streaming video programs),
check their holdings for videos and lessons that might be a great tie-in to
the lessons.

Finally, although this is a young group, you might want to consider whether
to participate in the Holocaust Museum of Houston's "Butterfly Project".
This project is to allow students from around the country create butterflies
which will be displayed within the museum (and later archived).  Each
butterfly represents a child who died in the Holocaust.

While you might not want to go into great detail about the Holocaust with
the children, you might want to consider asking them to donate their
butterfly to a special museum that will display their creation for the world
to see---and, of course, for history to remember.  The project can be found

Be sure to identify each butterfly by writing the child's name and the
school's name / city /state on the back (I'd use Avery labels and attach the
information on the back)---this allows the museum to catalog and archive the
creation for future use or research.

Have fun!
