We wrapped up our butterfly study with a trip to
The Butterfly House.
This week's study is in my top five for the year!
|We read to the docents!|
|We all took a turn in the human cocoon.|
|After we decorated flowers and butterflies,|
we demonstrated our knowledge of camouflage.
|The butterfly blends in with the bananas!|
|The proboscis can clearly be seen in this pic, |
curled up under the head.
Aren't the antennae fascinating?
|This butterfly has hatched and is waiting for wings to dry!|
|The giant cockroaches are... interesting.|
According to the docents, each roach has a unique personality!
We also wrote about our field trip experience, but I haven't photographed the writing!
Do you have a favorite field trip?
