Today was a big day for our butterflies. There were four butterflies when I arrived at school this morning. At the end of the day there were 20 butterflies with 13 chrysalises remaining. Below is a photo of a butterfly and a link to an emerging butterfly. Watch the upper left hand corner to see a time lapse video of the emerging butterfly.
We had a great time during our beach day!
I thought you might like to see a close up of one of the chrysalis.
Should I title this picture Chrysalis day 1? We have 32 chrysalises and one caterpillar hanging in it’s “J” shape.
We have our first caterpillar hanging in it’s “J” shape.
I’m sure we will see at least one chrysalis (or more) on Monday.
We had fun wearing our farmer clothes to school today and planting our sunflower seeds.
It is amazing to see how fast the caterpillars grow. I expect to see some caterpillars hanging in their “J” shape this weekend.
