Today our butterflies hatched out of their cocoons and began flying.

We have looked after our caterpillars for the last 3 weeks, watching them eat and grow.
We watched them spin themselves into a cocoons to begin the chrysalis stage of their life cycle.

We have learnt about their life cycle, what they eat as caterpillars and butterflies, we have looked at which species of butterflies come from which caterpillar and how we can provide a good habitat for them when they flying from their butterfly net.
