Please excuse our spelling on our first blogs. We are early into our fourth grade year and this was my student's first time using the computers. I was so pleased that they were able to use the caterpillar activity to explore what a caterpillar needs to survive and post their comments. The activity lets students choose the color, what kind of spines, and other characteristics. In making their decision they are supposed to pay attention to the leaf color and who the predators are.
While working in our garden at school or in your own yard at home, what type of butterflies have you seen? Have you seen any caterpillars? Have you observed any eggs on or below leaves? Try to remember what you have seen go on this California Butterfly site and see if you can identify what you have seen.
