Trinity Preschool Activities for Wednesday, April 12, 2011
We played outside in the playground today.
Our caterpillars are changing. One the far right in the picture is one that has changed already into a chrysalis, the one in the middle that is curled is ready to change and the one one the left has just gone to the top and will begin to form into a chrysalis. There is still one on the bottom of the cup eating food getting ready to change. They have grown from tiny caterpillars in less than 2 weeks! When they are all in chrysalis, we will remove them from the cup and hang them from the side of the butterfly house. Then when they emerge, they wil have room to fly around before we set them free outdoors.
