Project Painted Lady Butterflies

In keeping with our annual tradition. We delivered Painted Lady Larvae to the first grade class room yesterday.

The larvae arrived in a small UPS package and when opened, the contents revealed:
1 paint brush
1 jar of food
30 small plastic cups and lids
1 jar of painted lady larvae

Zhen, being experienced from last year, was eager to get started filling cups with food and transferring one larvae at a time, via paintbrush, into their individual plastic home.

After a brief presentation to his fellow students, the larvae were left in the classroom to grow and become chrysalis in a week or so. It is exciting to see the rate of growth they have each day and when they emerge as butterflies the kids will be beyond excited. Happy Spring!!
