[nggallery id=68]We have had great success with our butterflies. 9 out of the 10 cocoons hatched to release beautiful painted lady butterflies. We have been looking after them in class and observing them as they begin the use their wings to flutter around their habitat. It was such a beautiful sunny day yesterday we decided to release them outside. Some children were lucky enough to hold them before they flew off. We are also having success with our potatoes, herbs, mushrooms, outdoor planters and our classroom bulbs are beginning to grow.
