Can you imagine the excitement when Ms. Lawrence’s kindergarten class came upon a butterfly laying eggs on the fennel in the school’s garden in early September? The students have visited the garden each day to observe the eggs hatch into caterpillars, watch the caterpillars grow larger and larger, and actually see each caterpillar create their chrysalis. The students have anxiously awaited the emergence of the butterflies! Last week they witnessed the beautiful butterflies break out of their chrysalises and fly about in the Outdoor Classroom. Not only did the students learn a great science lesson, but Ms. Lawrence also applied many math and reading skills to the experience.
