On Monday, we received three caterpillars. We are very excited to watch them grow into butterflies. We are keeping butterfly journals, and watching them daily. They are starting to get fat. We think they're close to going into their chrysalis (the pupa), and we can't wait to see that. We've read several butterfly stories including, "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" and "Waiting for Wings." We have been learning about the life cycle of a butterfly. Today, we made butterflies, where we illustrated the four stages of the butterfly's life cycle. They are really cute!
