Butterfly Photos, Field Trip

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.
Blue Morpho
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!
Camouflaged Butterfly
The giant cockroaches are... interesting.
According to the docents, each roach has a unique personality!

A sweet mom made treats for the children:
mini Oreos and Ritz crackers.
In art class, we decorated the caterpillar side before
opening the template to reveal the butterfly side.
This was a fun way to illustrate symmetry.

We also wrote about our field trip experience, but I haven't photographed the writing!
Do you have a favorite field trip?

Now, a bit of wisdom from
