Over the past few weeks the boys and girls in P1 and P2 have had the opportunity to observe first hand the transformation that takes place from caterpillar to butterfly. We were amazed at how quickly the tiny little caterpillars grew into long , fat caterpillars. One by one they became chrysalis, attaching themselves to the lid of the container. Within two weeks two butterflies have hatched from their cocoons. There was lots of excitement about this and lots of interest shown in how we would care for and feed the new additions to our classroom. Now we are patiently waiting to see how many of the five will turn into caterpillars.
