A month ago the Junior Infant class got 5 new pets. They were teeny tiny caterpillars. Over the last month we have been able to watch them grow and change. All the caterpillars grew big and fat but only 3 changed into a chrysalis (cocoon). From those 3, one beautiful butterfly has emerged.
Today we set him free and we hope we will be able to set the rest free next week! Here are some pictures of the butterfly finding his new home in his natural habitat.
