Special Delivery!

Yesterday afternoon saw the delivery of a very important parcel for fifth grade. Inside were our precious little caterpillars, patiently waiting to meet the students who would care for them for the next few weeks. Today we each got our own caterpillar in a little container at our desk. The little containers are filled with the caterpillars' food and leave plenty of room for the caterpillar to get around. We watched an introduction video about butterflies and we are all excited to complete more research. We began a butterfly journal. Each day we plan on documenting what we see happening with our caterpillars. Not too far in the future, we know they will be turning into painted lady butterflies. Let the journey begin! (Check out the butterfly link under the "Science Links" section of the blog).
