Our first grade class (Mrs. Mandy Alvizo and Ms. Robyn Ryan's) at North Calloway Elementary in Murray, KY have been learning about butterflies and their life cycle. About 3 weeks ago, we ordered butterfly larva and have watched them go through their life cycle in our classroom. Our students made their own butterfly journals and have been making observations and predictions each day. The butterflies we ordered are called Painted Ladies. They came to us as caterpillars and we watched them develop into beautiful butterflies. The students have really enjoyed this science unit and were so excited to see when our butterflies came out of their chrysalises. The picture we have submitted is our first Painted Lady to emerge.
