Wow! It was very exciting when we came into school and discovered that our caterpillars have now entered the next stage of their life cycle! They are in their cocoons and so we had to transfer them into the butterfly net. We talked about how long they might be in their cocoon for and realised that this could be for two weeks! We also talked about why it is important that we don’t touch the cocoons or the butterfly net: “Because they might fall off”. We then talked about the next stage of the life cycle: “they are going to turn into butterflies”.
