What an amazing way to start our butterfly life cycle unit. The class is so excited. We got to watch one of the caterpillars form a chrysalis last week. It truly was simply an AHH-MAZING thing to get to watch firsthand!
So far we have one caterpillar that has already formed a chrysalis, one caterpillar that is HUGE and about to form a chrysalis, and one little caterpillar that just came out of the egg.
This is my favorite time of year... and I was super lucky to have found a milkweed plant with so many caterpillar eggs on it. I cannot wait for our first monarch butterfly to emerge from the chrysalis. I know the students are counting the days until we set our beautiful butterfly free in the school courtyard.
