Our Monarch Caterpillar Project

We found a Monarch caterpillar at the library garden & brought it home, where we made a little place for it to live (including a scaffold out of bamboo skewers & popsicle sticks for it to hang from so that it could become a chrysalis). It was a project that taught us a lot!

“Bob Caterpillar” climbing up the bamboo skewer ramp to find a spot to hang from.
“Bob Caterpillar” in chrysalis form.
“Bob Caterpillar” emerged and it’s a FEMALE!! Wyatt renamed her “Butter” since she was no longer a “Bob” nor a “Caterpillar”…
Newly emerged with wet, wrinkly wings, Butter hung for a while to dry herself.
