The Project

Project Title Butterflies
Insects To Study Butterflies
Project Description We are studying the life cycle of butterflies. We are raising Painted Lady caterpillars and observing them until they become adults. I would like to show the class a butterfly, egg, and larva and pupa if that is possible. I would like them to can see their heads and observe the feeding behaviors of the insect. It would also be important for them to see they crysalis if at all possible. We are using hand lenses but seeing these creatures with your microscope will increase their understanding. I plan to bring the class to the computer lab and show them the Bugscope on our Smart Board. Thank you, Jo Ann
