It is estimated that there are 10 times more species of moths than there are butterflies. Moths usually fly at night and those animals that eat moths are night-time predators. Butterflies feed through a proboscis, this is a long, straw-like mouth part, perfect for sucking up liquid. When the proboscis is not in use it is coiled under the insect's head.

Task 1: Draw a picture of a butterfly or moth.
Task 2: Make a large butterfly using recycled materials. Hang your butterfly from a ceiling.
