Vole vole petit papillon....

The GS and CP have been observing the different stages between a caterpillar and a butterfly. they started the school year by having monarch caterpillars in the classroom. They also studied in parallel Eric Carle's The Hungry Caterpillar. What a chance to witness this wonderful transformation in real time!

The "chenille" became a "chrysalide" and then today, the "papillon" got out of its chrysalis, took some time to spread and dry his wings. When it was time, the students went outside to release the monarch.

What an incredible moment it was!
