Life Cycles in the Nursery

We have been finding out about the lifecycles of  butterflies and frogs.

Kara and Scott brought in some tadpoles from their pond and we have been watching them grow.  They now have little back legs, so we hope they don’t start hopping out of their tank.

Our caterpillars started out really tiny but just like the Very Hungry Caterpillar they grew bigger and bigger until they were really huge.  This week the caterpillars have chrysalised and are hanging in their cocoons.  They look very still, but inside they are very busy turning into butterflies.  We can’t wait until they emerge.
