INSECT THEME: FROM CATERPILLAR TO BUTTERFLY
As part of our Insect Theme, we have been learning all about butterflies. Smiley is, of course, very interested in the metamorphosis from caterpillar to butterfly. So, to make our study really hands-on we ordered 5 caterpillars from Insect Lore.
It has been great. We are keeping a journal, in which we draw and write everyday, noting the changes we observe in our caterpillars. It is incredible how much they grow every day! Very fascinating, even for mom and dad!!
From Caterpillar to Butterfly by Deborah Heiligman.
This is a great book for preschoolers/kindergarteners, explaining the change from caterpillar to butterfly.
Beautiful Butterflies by Meish Goldish
This is a great book with many beautiful pictures of butterflies. It includes many interesting facts on butterflies.
Smiley helped me fill our mason jars with all kinds of goodies (grains, flours, sugar etc)...
The weekend was busy with lots of 4th of July celebrations and get-togethers :)
