Butterfly Observations

Butterfly Observations The children in Mrs. Jones’ 3/4-day class have been exploring the life cycle of butterflies by keeping a habitat in the classroom and observing caterpillars create their chrysalises and eventually emerge as butterflies.

“The children have learned poems about butterflies, delighted in books, graphed their favorite butterflies, learned new vocabulary and created original artwork about these amazing insects,” Jones said. “Today we released them into nature and said goodbye.”
