Mrs. Holly Johnson’s third grade class has been raising a family of butterflies. They read a story entitled, “Home Grown Butterflies.” The story was about students in another country who raised butterflies. After reading the story, Mrs. Johnson’s students decided that they would like to do the same thing. The class ordered a cup of baby caterpillars. Over a period of several weeks they documented the changes that caterpillars made as they transformed into beautiful butterflies. The students really enjoyed seeing and learning about the life cycle of the butterflies, and are looking forward to telling others about their observations.
