Plants and Butterflies...Spring Teachings

Its been a good week for school, so far. The kids are loving our Plants and Butterfly unit this week...


Having fun learning the different stages of the Changing Caterpillar!
A blogging friend suggested (Hi Jaime) that we might buy one of those butterfly cage kits...I will be looking for one!  We do love the Butterfly Garden at the Bronx Zoo so we will be visiting there this month again.



More work from the Garden Pack from Preschool Corner (see sidebar for the button)!


Learning about the seed and what parts a seed has..





Experiment today!  


1 cup of popcorn (unpopped)


Pour into a glass, fill almost to the top....then pour water over the top of that until it covers the popcorn


Set inside a dish and let it go....we were suppose to hear sounds after about 5-6 hours but the only result was that the water was all gone..hmm..


We will doing Egg Carton Crafts all month!  Great book...




Molly picked out the purple monster and Zachary the Yellow Snail....








Molly in her Spring drawing mode!

For music this week we are learning a cute song...to the tune "London Bridge is Falling Down."

It's A Rainbow

Red and orange and yellow too
Don't forget green and blue
Add some violet, then you're through
It's a Rainbow!

I've studied plants and butterflies with my children before and enjoyed it a lot! It looks like ya'll are having fun and experiments seem to never work for me! I would highly recommend buying the caterpillar with cage. We bought ours from Insect Lore two different times and it is easy and so fun to see the caterpillars turn into butterflies and then release them. Living critters usually don't last long in our home because I don't stay on top of feeding them, but the caterpillars/butterfly cage was a success and they stayed alive!
