Butterfly Life Cycles

Students in grades prekindergarten through first are participating in hands-on learning activities, as they investigate the life cycle of a Monarch butterfly.  Classrooms are caring for live caterpillars, feeding them milkweed, and watching as each caterpillar changes from a larva to pupa, and then to an adult butterfly.

The first butterfly emerged from its chrysalis on October 3, and students in Mrs. Lisicki’s class set it free, to fly to a warmer climate, where it will remain for the winter… then begin the cycle again in the spring.
