Atoms Help Butterflies Spread their Wings and Fly
Thursday, April 8th, 2021—Syracuse Academy of Science 4th grade Atoms had a unique hands-on, minds-on learning experience as they helped raise and observe caterpillars to learn about the life cycle of a butterfly. For those not familiar with the butterfly life cycle the stages include:
- The egg
- The larva
- The pupa
- The butterfly
Each of these four stages is unique to the type of butterfly. As the students’ caterpillars went through the metamorphosis process, they observed each of these four stages. Last week, with the nice warm weather the students were able to release their beautiful butterflies. Click here to head to our Facebook page to view pictures of the butterfly release.
