This past September we acquired 2 chrysalises and 4 very small caterpillars from a company called "Butterflies and Roses". Our Panthers watched as these beautiful creatures transformed- going through the process of metamorphosis. The primary students read about monarch butterflies in their classrooms and learned about the life cycle of these butterflies. When the butterflies emerged the students gathered for their release chanting- "Gotta go, gotta go, gotta go to Mexico" which they had learned from a book written by Sam Swope and Sue Riddle. It was an exciting way to start the new school year!
