Our caterpillars have now developed into the Pupa stage. The children have kept a close watch on them since their arrival. It has been fascinating to see how they have been comparing their observations to their findings in books. Here are pictures of some of the activities that they worked on this week.
Drawing observations of the change to Pupa ,once they were placed in the butterfly house.
Sequencing a story from a ebook by Evan Moor titled "Egg, Caterpillar, Butterfly". This was a color, cut, glue activity.
Working with "Parts Of The Butterfly" cards.
The parts of the butterfly sparked a lot of interest. They wanted to know more about the proboscis ( it is like a long tongue or drinking straw coming from the head). So we talked about how the butterfly eats and what they eat . They did this project and had a lot of fun with their proboscis.
