First grade spent the last few weeks expanding on their NGSS standards and learning about the life cycle of butterflies. We started with caterpillars that grew and grew and morphed into their third chrysalis stage. We patiently waited through their chrysalis stage and watched in awe as they hatched into beautiful butterflies just in time to share with our families at Spring Fling! Today we spent the morning releasing them into our Friendship Garden where they can continue the life cycle. If you’re lucky you may catch one flutter your way!
