Butterfly observations

We received our caterpillars over a week ago now and the kids have had a great time watching them eat the food and grow bigger and bigger!  The kids were so excited when they came in this week to see the caterpillars had become Chrysalides (cocoons).  We’ve placed the chrysalides into the butterfly habitat and now the next step is for them to work their magic and turn into beautiful butterflies, which usually takes 7-10 days.  The kiddos have been watching them and then recording their findings in their butterfly notebook.  They are learning how to observe and record what they see/think by drawing pictures and some are even writing some words with help.  I can’t wait to see their little faces when we have butterflies!

Happy May!!!
