Monarch Madness

 

It has been a wild month filled with caterpillars, chrysalises, and butterflies!  We collected a whopping 36 monarch caterpillars, fed them milkweed, watched them grow,  finally crawl into the classic J formation and transform into chrysalises.  We then patiently waited, and waited, and waited for the magical emergence of the Monarch butterflies!  We learned about butterfly tagging and were able to tag a few ourselves.  It has been a wonderful learning experience for our students!
