In 5CS, the children have been raising and feeding their own butterflies and then released them into the wild!
The butterfly garden kit which they used, gave the children the opportunity to watch caterpillars change into chrysalides and then emerge as beautiful Painted Lady Butterflies. The children raised and feed the butterflies The process from caterpillar to adult butterfly took about four weeks.
The children have been fascinated by the entire transformation from caterpillar to butterfly and were sad to see them go!
