Caterpillar to Butterfly

Mrs. Lyman bought a butterfly kit. We have caterpillars that will turn into butterflies. Here is a picture of the caterpillars. The students named them Bookworm and Billy Bob Joe.

     Our caterpillars are good eaters.  They eat the food that came with the kit.  They are getting bigger every day.

       Our caterpillar has formed a chrysallis. Drew  predicted the correct day it would happen It is snug inside the shelter it made.  Now we wait for it to become a butterfly.

Below you can see what they looked like after they emerged from their chrysallis May 6th. They had changed a lot!

Our butterflies hatched today! Michael, Sarah, and Libby predicted they would hatch today. We took them out to the playground and released them both.

Bye Bookworm and Billy Bob Joe! :-)
