Caterpillar Fever

Post date: Apr 4, 2014 6:48:33 PM

Our caterpillars arrived last week, and they've grown from tiny caterpillars

to great big caterpillars, and are now inside their crysalides.

We've been noting our observations and making naturalist's drawings of their development.

We're seeing lots of caterpillar-related art work...

some of which has very specific detail, like this egg carton model

covered in "soft spikes" made from pipe cleaners.

We're using our whole bodies in caterpillar hopscotch.

And we're amazed by the caterpillar/chrysalis/butterfly life cycle,

as in this drawing by Ellie!
