Every spring, many children in their classrooms watch and observe caterpillars change and grow into butterflies! Even as an adult, I still am in awe of metamorphosis of the butterfly. I've studied the process, got really nerdy and scientific, but it still just left me with a lot more questions. So, I decided to record and share an at home project with all of you! Raising Painted Lady Caterpillars! I hope all of you will join in as I update you on the daily progress of our caterpillars. Both of my sons will participants in this project, sharing their ideas from a teenage perspective and a five year old perspective - this should be interesting! Pus, I hope all of you will share your comments and observations as the project continues!
We purchased our live caterpillars from Insect Lore. Ms. Jenn has a funny story about Insect Lore's founder, Carlos White. To check out the story, click here!
