Last Friday during Golden Time, we discovered some caterpillars living in the school garden. There were lots of them on the broccoli.
On Monday the 28th of September we brought some of these caterpillars into our classroom. They are in a manmade habitat. They like to eat LOTS of broccoli; we think they are very hungry!
On Thursday we collected some more broccoli leaves for their dinner. As we walked under the willow arch into the garden we had to be extra careful as there was a caterpillar crossing the path!
Mr O’Donnell cleaned out their habitat and gave them even more broccoli leaves on Friday so the hungry caterpillars will have enough food for the weekend.
There was great excitement in our classroom today when one of the caterpillars escaped! Shane spotted it on the wall above the Autumn Tree! We went out for our lunch and the caterpillar crawled onto our Waste Free Wednesday sign. Kathryn kindly picked the caterpillar up and placed it back with its friends. What an adventure for our caterpillar!!!!
