Life-Cycles

 
Investigating Life-Cycles!
We have really enjoyed observing the changes of our class caterpillars over the past month. We couldn't quite believe how small they started off, gradually getting bigger and bigger and shedding their exoskeletons. After that they spun their cocoons and after a couple of weeks some children were lucky enough to see the butterflies emerge from the Chrysalis.
 
We were even more surprised when a moth emerged from a cocoon that we found in the outdoor area and decided to find out similarities and differences between moths and butterflies. 
 
The children have loved writing about the life-cycle, writing messages to our butterflies and some have even been busy creating the stages of the life-cycle with Playdough and natural materials in the outdoor area.
