Butterflies!

 
Our first grade team purchased butterfly habitats and kits.  We have six active caterpillar in our classroom habitat that are busy eating and preparing for the next stage.  We'll be able to release our butterflies into Highland Island the last week of school! 
 
With this project, the children are learning to "wonder and think".  They are asking questions, observing, gathering information, reflecting and making predictions.  In their journals, the children are illustrating, explaining, and recording data.  
 
Throughout the day, the children gather near the habitat and communicate about their discoveries.  They're having fun naming each caterpillar and can't wait for the final stage of the cycle!
