The Life Cycle of a Butterfly!

The parents association kindly ordered Butterfly Growing Kits for the 2nd and 4th classes this year. They arrived last month. We received two containers with tiny caterpillars inside.

In Room 8, we have been very busy observing our caterpillars as they grow and change! We learned about the life cycle of the butterfly and sang a cool song about metamorphosis to help us learn about the different stages of their development. I’m sure the girls would be happy to sing it for you if you asked them!

We were VERY excited on Friday when, just after our maths stations, Ivana noticed a little movement in our butterfly hatching habitat. One of our butterflies transitioned from its chrysalis into a beautiful butterfly! An hour or so later, another butterfly appeared, leaving behind his chrysalis.

Look at our photos below!

Also, thank you Anna Grimes for bringing in a wonderful book on the Life Cycle of the Butterfly! 🙂
