These are some photos of the life cycle of a butterfly we witnessed first hand in our class.

This was a very exciting time for us early on in the year.  We were able to witness a the life cycle of a Monarch Butterfly.  We had our own very hungry caterpillar who satisfied his appetite on milkweed before he formed a chrysalis.  We waited with great anticipation while he was going through his metamorphosis.  Finally after about two and a half weeks, he emerged as a beautiful butterfly.  We made sure we let him go in time to join the great migration south!

There he goes!  Migrating south to escape the cold winter ahead.
