Butterfly Studies

Room 2 joins the Butterfly Craze! Last week Sydney found two Monarch caterpillars on the playground. We decided to bring them in to see what they might turn into. This has led to many great research topics such as:

“Where did the mom go?“

“Do they have eyes?“

“Do they sleep?“

 We have been using books, videos and our observation skills to answer these questions. We have been busy drawing and painting what we see and how they change, feeding them,making caterpillars from slime as well as walking through our neighborhood to find butterflies and the plants they like to eat. Hopefully we will have a chrysalis soon!
