2nd Grade Butterflies

The second graders have been learning about caterpillars and butterflies. Each student has their own caterpillar that they get to watch morph into a butterfly. The students know the life cycle from egg to adult butterfly. They have learned about several different species of butterflies and how they help flowers and plants stay alive. Throughout this lesson, students have kept observation books noting changes, important vocabulary associated with butterflies, and diagrams. Once the butterflies have emerged, we will observe them for a few days and then release them into nature!
