1st Graders Learn the Moth Life Cycle

     Spring time is here!  Black, red-banded caterpillars have been roaming the gardens.  First grade managed to collect several beautiful caterpillars to care for and observe their transformation into a beautiful Giant Leopard Moth.  They worked hard collecting and feeding them Dandilion leaves to get them ready for their journey.  They were fascinated watching them shed their skin and weave their web in terrariums forming a black Chrysalis.  Approxiamately 3 weeks later, a Beautiful Giant Leopard Moth emerged from it's home!!!  What a great entrance to Spring!
