At Butterfly Pavilion, we transform the way people think about invertebrates. These small but mighty animals that surround us are so much more than people think. They are everywhere, because everything depends on them. They are the hidden heroes of the animal kingdom, and we--you and us--stand on the backs of these tiny giants. 

Butterfly Pavilion is the first stand-alone, Association of Zoos and Aquariums-accredited non-profit invertebrate zoo in the world and a leader in invertebrate knowledge, inspiration and connection. Our virtual programs feature interactive, real-time lessons on-screen facilitated by a Butterfly Pavilion educator, live on-screen animal experiences and/or exploration of real-world conservation topics and curriculum-aligned content that uses visual and audio media to illustrate science concepts.

Program Details


1. Students will brainstorm the four things that all habitats have to have for animals to survive, and then use movement to remember them.
2. Using pictures, videos, and live animals, students will have the opportunity to learn more about each of those four parts of a habitat.
3. Students will take everything they've learned about and observe an unusual animal home to determine if it is a habitat.


The participants will know what bugs (and all animals) need to survive.
The participants will use questions to observe an organism to discover what it eats, how it finds/creates shelter, how it uses water, and how much space it needs.
The participants will compare different animal habitats and strategies for surviving.
