Class 6 Butterflies

In science we have been learning all about life cycles.

We have been so lucky and watched the life cycle of a butterfly happen in our classrooms. 


It started off with some very small, cute caterpillars which ate and ate and grew very large! They then attached to the lid and became chrysalides. After a few days we moved them safely into our butterfly habitat. We waited and watched very carefully for another week before the butterflies began to emerge. It was so exciting!

We fed the butterflies with fruit and we also gave them some sugar water. We were able to watch our new butterflies for a few days before we set them free.
