ducklingsWeek of April 8

This week we will begin our unit on metamorphosis.  We will learn the four main parts of the butterfly’s life cycle.  We will also discover how butterflies use their antennae to smell and their feet to taste.  We will begin by creating caterpillars and learn how caterpillars transition into butterflies.  We will create butterflies by using eye dropper art and we will also paint butterflies at the easel.  We will also discuss the different type of foods that attract butterflies..  The children will each create their own chrysalis and discover how important this protection is to the caterpillar as it changes into a butterfly.  Our literature will consist of “The Hungry Caterpillar”, “The butterfly Life Cycle”, “Waiting For Wings”, “The Butterfly House”.  Vocabulary words will be larvae, chrysalis, nectar, migration and monarch.
