Beautiful Butterflies

120 butterflies reared by every girl in the Junior Department...

 Every girl in the Junior Department has this term reared her own Painted Lady butterfly from a tiny caterpillar, to a chrysalis and finally to a beautiful winged creature.  The girls have enjoyed developing their skills of observation as they have watched their caterpillars grow significantly in such a short time, spinning a web of silk and becoming a green chrysalis with tiny gold spots.  Towards the end of this experience, the girls will enjoy feeding the butterflies different fruits and sugar-water before releasing their butterflies into the wild and waving a fond farewell.
