PK3 has been studying the life cycle of butterflies over the last few weeks.  We learned that caterpillars, grow bigger, make a cocoon or chrysalis and then become beautiful butterflies.  This week our butterflies were ready to be released into nature.  See pictures in our Butterfly Gallery!

PK-4 students observed the life cycle of Painted Lady butterflies this Spring! On a sunny day, the butterflies were released to flitter on clothing and fingers and finally to fly away.

Our caterpillars are out of their cocoons!  We put the butterflies in a large tent.  We added some food like; sugar water and oranges.  Then we all had a turn going inside the tent.  The butterflies would fly around us and sometimes they landed on us!  They tickle when they walk on our arms or hands.  We could even see their tongues they use like a straw to drink up their food.
