Senior Infants have been learning all about “The Life Cycle of a Butterfly”.

1. They have learned that the Butterfly lays eggs onto a milkweed plant leaf.

2. Then the caterpillar growing inside the egg eats its way out of the egg and grows bigger and bigger by eating the leaf.

3. He then sheds his skin and turns into a cocoon or chrysalis.

4. The butterfly starts to form inside the Chrysalis and after two weeks the Butterfly will burst out of the Chrysalis and spread its wings.

We were able to bring caterpillars into our classroom and we have been watching them grow.

We can’t wait to see them turn into  chrysalis!!

The caterpillars are thin and small

They have grown bigger and started to shed her skin.

We have done a a lot of artwork about butterflies. We painted one side of a butterfly and folded it over to show symmetry. We have cut out pictures of the different stages of the life cycle and glued them in the right order and we have also made pasta life cycles.
