We have a caterpillar castle.
Whaea Angela got it from the Monarch Butterfly Trust.
This morning when we looked in it, we saw that some of the 10 chrysalis that we have were dark.
When the caterpillar first makes the chrysalis they are light green.
We knew that because they had changed that meant we would soon have some butterflies.
We were VERY excited!
After lunch we saw that 4 had hatched and then another one hatched!
We had 3 males and 2 females.
Nearly everyone wanted to hold the butterflies. We showed lots of Russell School HEART and were very gentle with them.
It was sad when they flew away and we hope they will come back and visit us.
