Each morning this week the children have checked our butterfly eggs as soon as they walk into the classroom.
This morning, before the morning bell rang, we added a few non-fiction books about butterflies to the center. During play time, we took note that almost half of class went to the centre during play time and looked through the books. At one time, 4 children looked through one of the books together and discussed how the pictures of the eggs and caterpillars looked like the ones in our container. Several children made predictions about what they thought our butterflies would look like compared to the books.
It has been wonderful to see how the children are enjoying this real-life science center.
