This week’s Freebie Friday features the Life Cycle of a Monarch Butterfly. I’m experimenting with the fun and glittery illustrations made by Glitter Meets Glue Designs. The blacklines are realistic, and the colored illustrations are glittery. I’m curious to see how the students respond to this new style in the classroom. Scroll down for details about how to get this printable.
