Our caterpillars arrived this week and that began our talk
and investigation into the life cycle of the butterfly.

We started by recording what the caterpillars look like in their new home.

At the art table I pulled out the air dry modeling clay.

And we moulded caterpillars of different colours and size.

I really enjoy this time of year with the beginning of new life. 
Raising butterflies is a quick way to look at a life cycle.

It also promotes wondering out loud. 
Asking questions to develop curiosity and helping us learn
more about our topic.
Stay tune to see what questions we'll ask.

  1. Wonderful caterpillars. I am curious what your kids will wonder about caterpillars and butterflies. I will have to ask my kindergarten kids the same query when our caterpillars arrive. It will be interesting to see the different questions from the different age groups.
