I taught them to make the sign for butterfly and then we took a picture. The Core class all wanted to be in front of the blue strip. So we had to take two pictures.
The Core class made egg carton caterpillars and were able to color a book on the life cycle of the Butterfly found here:
In both classes we talked about how the only plant the Monarch Caterpillar eats is the Milkweed. We also talked about how Milkweed is poisonous and can kill livestock.
