This year we are studying geography. For the first couple of weeks we have been focused on the World in general. Looking at the continents, oceans, explorers and some different animals of the world. One animal we are talking about was the butterfly. I thought it would be great if the kids could see the how a catepillar forms into a beautiful butterfly. So I went out and bought us a butterfly habitat and ordered our catepillars and we now have Painted Lady Butterflies. These pictures are of the chrysalis and butterflies. If you look closely at the 2nd and 3rd picture you will see one emerging from its chrysalis. Out of six we were able to see one emerge, very neat process. The kids have been very excited about their butterflies and watching them each day.
