Butterflies

As part of the Biodiversity theme of our Green Schools Project, we decided to grow some butterflies. We got some caterpillars from the Live Butterfly Garden Project soon after the Easter Holidays, and watched them for the next 10 days. They grew and grew and then transformed into chrysalides. After 10 more days, we watched in amazement as fully grown butterflies emerged. After feeding them and caring for them for three more days it was time to release them. It was a wonderful experience to watch them take flight.
