View This Resource

Download this complete unit of instructions to conduct an ecosystem inquiry. In this investigation, students have the opportunity to witness first-hand the dynamic relationship between Brassica butterflies and Wisconsin Fast Plants. Students are responsible for tending the butterflies and plants throughout the entire life cycles, while they explore and explain the changes that each organism goes through and the impact they have on each other. Complete kits are available from Carolina Biological for this investigation, or everything to grow Fast Plants and raise Brassica butterflies can be built or obtained locally, using the instructions available on the Fast Plants website.
