We have been watching our butterflies go through the stages of their lives . When they arrived at BASE they were already out of the eggs as caterpillars. We watched them get bigger and bigger. Over the past few days we have seen them all hang upside down and form their chrysalis. We learned that butterflies make chrysalis and moths make cacoons. We are now patiently waiting for our butterflies to hatch.
Have you ever wondered what it must feel like to be in a chrysalis? We wanted to know so we did an experiment. We took turns wrapping each other up in toilet paper to resemble a chrysalis. We had a blast doing this activity! See below for some pictures!
Check back soon as we will post more pictures when our butterflies hatch and are released outside!
