Butterflies Released Today
After being in our classroom for nearly 4 weeks, we released the butterflies into the wild today. They started in our room as caterpillars (larva) and then changed to chrysalis (pupa) and then emerged as adult butterflies. Their total life span is pretty short once they emerge as butterflies, so it is important that we let them live out the rest of their life in the outdoors. They will lay eggs and complete their part of the life cycle.
