Our favorite Spring transformation… butterflies!

Our school received our caterpillars for one of the most exciting class projects of the year. Our students will care for the caterpillars and watch as they build their cocoons and eventually turn into beautiful butterflies!

The students have been talking a lot about the symmetry of a butterfly and used a folded piece of paper to create their own symmetrical butterfly paintings.

They also read Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar to talk about how the caterpillar needs to grow and eat nutrients before it can spin it’s cocoon and transform.

We love watching our caterpillars grow and transform, just like our blossoming children!
