Guess what just arrived?! Our BUTTERFLY larva! I know ..... It's a beautiful life of a teacher.
Let me just say, I have NEVER been a caterpillar person. I don't do any kind of -pede, caterpillar, worm, or snake. They just creep me out. But, each year I set aside my extreme disgust and order these little guys for my kiddos to observe the beautiful cycle!
I dutifully pulled them out and put numbers on the cups. I let my kiddos put the butterfly food into a numbered cup and watch/observe it until it is in a 'J' shape. Then I will transfer them into the class net!
Pray for this teacher that I don't accidentally destroy a student's heart by messing up their little butterflies.
