Butterfly Metamorphosis

Stage 2: Caterpillars

Our greedy caterpillars have made it from Badgers' classroom to Miss McCreadie's kitchen, all safe and sound! They are enjoying their last few days as wiggly caterpillars before the next stage of their transformation!


Did you know?

Our fully grown caterpillars are now over 100 times bigger than when they emerged from their eggs! 


Home Learning Ideas

Why not use the internet to research fun facts about caterpillars and create a fact file which includes interesting facts and pictures? Think creatively about how you could present your information - could you use Purple Mash? You could then teach the other people in your house everything you have found out about caterpillars!

Stage 3: Chrysalids

Our fully grown caterpillars have now stored up enough energy and are ready for the next stage of metamorphosis. They have climbed to the top of the cup and attached themselves to the underside of the lid. You can see they are hanging in a letter 'j' shape, and have begun to harden into chrysalids. After three days, the chrysalids were hard enough for Miss McCreadie to transfer them into the butterfly habitat, where they will take about two weeks to form into butterflies! 


Did you know?

The hard case which forms around the chrysalids is used to protect it from predators and extreme weather conditions.


Home Learning Ideas

Have a look in your own garden for any caterpillars, or even butterflies which are enjoying the spring sunshine! You could draw a picture or take a photograph of what you find! Can you research what type of butterfly you have found?

Stage 4: Butterflies!

Finally! After two weeks as chrysalids, our Painted Lady butterflies have hatched and are ready to be released into the garden. Aren't they beautiful? 


Did you know?

Our Painted Lady butterflies can cover a lot of ground- up to 100 miles per day during their migration!
