In case you haven't heard...WE HAVE CHRYSALISES. It's very big news over here. We now have to be extra gentle with our little creatures. They have attached themselves to the tops of our cups and we really don't want to shake them free. We have been able to observe their cycle with own eyes and it's nothing short of amazing. Did you know a caterpillar hangs from the ceiling and forms and "j" shape with it's body? Then it slowly wriggles and writhes until it's spun a protective chrysalis around itself. Then it hangs very still and waits for the magic to happen!
We're thinking we may see some butterflies next week. So, we took some time to look at the whole butterfly life cycle. Today we drew the habitat for each stage of life. Tomorrow Miss Kylie has a surprise for how we are going to create eggs, caterpillars, chrysalises, and butterflies.
