Caterpillars to Butterflies

Early Years

Caterpillars made an appearance in Year 2 as part of a 'Hungry Caterpillar / Life Cycle' Inquiry Topic. Students were excited to see eggs and caterpillars and cannot wait to experience chrysalises and, eventually, butterflies!

A few weeks later the Year 2's were excited to observe their caterpillars turn into chrysalises and finally emerge as beautiful butterflies. It was an enjoyable and educational experience watching the life cycle of "Bob" and "Gracie" who have now been released back into their natural habitat.
