Students in C3 and C4 have watched Sarah, the caterpillar, grow fat on lime leaves. On Saturday she turned into a fat pupa and on Monday emerged as a beautiful butterfly. We released her in the garden and she flew happily away to “goodbyes” from the children. We now await the emergence of her friend Mac, a fat pupa. The children are now very familiar with life cycles, especially that of the butterfly.
A big thank you to Khun Ping, Caroline’s mum, for bringing in breakfast every day and pupa sitting on the weekend.
