4 Caterpillars = 4 Butterflies

This week we did a unit on Butterflies and moths
and the best part of this unit was watching the whole metamorphis happening right in front of our eyes.  The caterpillars that we got were about ready when we got them so didn't have to wait for long for the change to start.

Here you can see the last two caterpillars finding their hanging spot

Once the butterflies came out from the pupa their bodies were all plump and when they were done they pushed out this red stuff that wasn't need for their wings.

here is one of our painted lady butterflies.  The inside wings are bright and colorful.

A great week of study and we learned a lot about butterflies and moths
