Monarch Butterflies

In the Kindergarten classroom, we have been studying caterpillars and watching them turn into butterflies. The caterpillar tank has been the center of our class activities. Throughout this process, we made caterpillar art projects with a variety of materials. Using a paint brush, sponges and strips of colored paper, we made all sorts of caterpillars.
The playground is the ideal place to look for a variety of sorts of caterpillars, and now we know to be careful not to touch them with our hands! Finally, when they came out of their cocoons, we set them free! Nature is fascinating to observe!
