Inquiring About Butterflies

All of the classes in our school received caterpillars to observe this month!  The kids were so excited to see the provocation set up when they walked in!

The kids documented, observed and wondered as the caterpillars grew, shed skin, and created their chrysalis. Finally, this week, they emerged as beautiful butterflies! This was a favorite area to visit as they observed and documented the butterflies!  Using resources set out for them, they researched and identified them as Painted Ladies. 

After witnessing the life cycle of the butterfly, they documented it using materials set out for them. 

We decided on Friday to let them go.  It was supposed to rain and they had a discussion about how they would protect themselves. They initially did not want to let them go, but when we talked about what they needed and where they would be happiest, they agreed it was for the best. We went outside and enjoyed them, said our goodbyes, and created more happy memories!

  1. I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
    liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
    reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
    became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
    ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC ( in March, 2020. Their
    treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
    the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
    treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.
