Hannah's caterpillars

Hannah got a special kit to 'grow butterflies'
It came with a set of helpful instructions
On day 2 the caterpillars were tiny
They had everything they needed to grow in the cup
They moulted they exoskeletons. Frass is 'poo'!
How long were they after 1 week?

The caterpillars got bigger and bigger.
The caterpillars are now in chrysalis form.
The chrysalsis is a bit like a shell
What do you think is happening inside?

What do you think will happen next?

Butterflies emerged from the chrysalis
They rested in the net for a few days then...
Hannah opened the net outside
Helped to the flowers
Resting on the wall
Letting the last butterflies go
These are the empty chrysalis
