Butterflies and Caterpillars: The students learned that butterflies are insects. They also discovered that a butterfly’s life cycle is made up of four parts, egg, larva (caterpillars), pupa (chrysalis) and adult. We talked about how an adult butterfly will eventually emerge from the chrysalis where it will wait a few hours for its wings to fill with blood and dry, before flying for the first time. The students learned that butterflies often have brightly colored wings with unique patterns (symmetric). We read about how most butterflies feed on nectar from flowers and have taste receptors on their feet.
