Students Learn About the Life Cycle of a Butterfly

For the past 20 days Fabulous First grade has been raising caterpillars to become butterflies.  During this time, students got to observe the changes in each of the 4 stages of the butterfly life cycle. It started with adopting and naming our caterpillars. Besides mastering this science standard, students got to work on many other standards in the areas of math and English Language Arts. We measured our caterpillars each day we observed, worked on including adjectives in our observation journals, and will now begin writing our very own stories of our butterflies adventure after their release.  Although we are sad to see them go, we are hoping some will make our back field their new habitat!
