Butterflies in fourth class.

In 4th class, we had 4 caterpillars. We learnt the butterfly lifecycle. When they first came into the class, they were very small caterpillars. They got bigger and bigger and eventually went into a chrysalis. They were in their chrysalis for about a week and a half. Then the wings started to come out of their chrysalis. Then the butterfly flew out of their chrysalis. We kept them a week. We fed them flowers and we mixed sugar and water to make nectar. After that, we brought them outside to their natural habitat and set them free. We had great fun learning about them!!
