Hello Grown-Ups!

Today we got to learn about insects that fly! We started off the day meeting Boris the Butterfly. She told us all about insects that fly and why we can’t fly! We learned about a process called metamorphosis, and how insects like butterflies weren’t always a butterfly. We checked our bug traps and found a few new critters and then explored our butterfly garden for and caterpillars or butterflies. We ended the day making butterfly footprints, butterfly coffee filters and a life-cycle of a butterfly on a paper plate!

Tomorrow we are learning about insects who have lots of legs! This will include spiders and other similar insects!

Can’t wait to see you tomorrow!
