Ki-sis. Yep, that’s what our caterpillars changed into…a ki-sis! Haha! Grayson was so excited, and a tad bit confused, to see his caterpillars change into chrysalises or chrysalides.
When I was teaching my favorite tool in the classroom was double-sided tape! I used it for almost everything, including moving our chrysalises into their garden. I am always happy to find a reason to bring it out at home and I think it works great for this activity.
Grayson also used watercolors to paint his Life Cycle of a Butterfly page. We used rice, rotini, shell and bowtie pasta to represent each phase in the butterfly life cycle.
