Our caterpillars came in the mail (always an exciting time). The day after the caterpillars arrived the children came to school asking if they had turned into butterflies yet. Haha!! Patience, our little friends!
Here are the caterpillars starting to move up to the top to build their chrysalis!
Earlier in the week we learned about the life cycle of a butterfly:
We also read The Very Hungry Caterpillar and made an adorable caterpillar to help with retelling:
Some even got to use our fun puppet!
We also made our fun caterpillar necklaces again this year! So, so cute!!
Today we discuss the body parts of the butterfly:
We made the cutest butterfly hats:
Even the Build a Bear got to wear a butterfly hat today!
Then we pretended we were butterflies and drank "nectar" (apple juice) from a flower using our "proboscis" (a straw).
To top it all off we made an edible insect using marshmallows, frosting, pretzel sticks, chocolate chips, and Doritos. Yum!
