The Life Cycle of a Butterfly
Our book of the week this week is…
In our Understanding the World activity, we learnt about the life cycle of a butterfly.
We learnt some key vocabulary:
egg, caterpillar, cocoon & butterfly
We learnt about the changes a caterpillar goes through and how it becomes a butterfly!
First a butterfly lays her egg on a leaf.
Next the caterpillar begins to eat its way out of the leaf. After, it eats and eats until it becomes big.
Then the caterpillar will shed its skin and go inside the cocoon.
Finally the butterfly will come out of the cocoon and fly away!
We made our own life cycle with pictures and talked about this process.
