The kids (and I) were very excited to observe the little caterpillars crawling around their jars, eating food, shedding exoskeletons, and pooping. They used their magnifying glasses to look at them up close, and we discussed their observations.
A week ago, when we got back from a weekend trip, our caterpillars started their chrysalis stage. I transferred them very carefully to their new butterfly pavilion (a mesh container), and we are now eagerly awaiting for our butterflies to emerge.. Once they do, we'll be doing more activities as we learn about butterflies and review the full life cycle.. but that's for a different blog post...
