Over the past few weeks, Kirsten's class has been doing a science unit all about butterflies. I am going to let her tell you all about her experience.
Two weeks ago, our class got caterpillars. I named one of the caterpillars Flutter. She was a really pretty caterpillar, she smiled everytime I looked at her. Caterpillars eat leaves and get fat so they can make a crysalis. They get in it and stay there for one week. During that week we learned all about their life cycle. They start as an egg. Then grow into a caterpillar, then they make their crysalis, then they turn into butterflies. Then this Wednesday Flutter came out of her crysalis as a beautiful painted lady butterfly. We watched her in our classroom and even saw her eat watermelon with her proboscis! On Thursday we let them go. When Flutter went out, I was really sad, I now I am writing poems about her and drew her pictures so I can always remember her. I even think I saw her on my way home from school today. These are pictures of my class releasing all of our butterflies
