In our English reader we had been reading about the lifecycle of the butterfly. It was so interesting so we decided to do some more research on the topic.
There are a lot of changes that happen for a butterfly to develop.
These changes are called 'metamorphosis'.
There are 4 stages:
1) A butterfly lays her eggs on a leaf
2) The eggs hatch and a caterpillar is formed
3) The caterpilllar eats and eats and forms into a 'pupa'
4) After some weeks the pupa opens up and a butterfly makes its way into the world
We also learned about the lifecycle of a frog. Come and visit our classroom and see some of the information we have put together!
