Over the weekend, our caterpillars became chrysalides!
First, we divided the plate into fourths and then the kids wrote out the numbers 1-4 on their plates.

|T.S glues the beans "eggs" to his 1st quarter on the plate|
|G.A presses down the beans to make sure they're secure|
|A.K glues on the rotini "chrysalis"|
|G.P gluing on her chrysalides|
Here, are some of the students with their finished butterfly life cycle plates--

Here is an online game for kids about the life cycle of a butterfly--life cycle of a butterfly game.
Tomorrow, we will begin planting. Each child will receive a cup to plant and choose which veggies or herbs they want to plant. They'll get to scoop the soil into their planters and plant their seeds.
Tomorrow, is also voting day for the Albany city school district budget. Please click here for more info and please take the time out to vote!
Side note, special congratulations to all the recent graduates! President Obama spoke at my alma mater today!
