Caterpillar Friends

The children in Room 3 at our Thompson Building have been eagerly awaiting their caterpillars to transition into butterflies! In the last few weeks, caterpillars have been brought in from outside and kept safely in the classroom. The children have been patiently observing them as their cocoons hung from their cages. In support of their caterpillar friends, the children have been creating clay caterpillars and cocoons while watching and learning about the transformation process. On Thursday, the first caterpillar hatched from its chrysalis into a beautiful Monarch!
