2nd Grade Butterflies
GSES 2nd graders love watching the metamorphosis of caterpillars to butterflies. Throughout the month of March the students learned about the life cycle of a butterfly. They get to watch their own individual caterpillar eat, grow, shed its skin, form its chrysalis, and finally grow into a butterfly. At the end of the study we release the butterflies as a class into nature. The students eagerly wait on their butterflies to hatch from their chrysalises!
