Study of Caterpillars

Bugville Butterfly Treehouse
There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it's going to be a butterfly.

Learning can be so enjoyable, especially when your having fun. We arrived home the other day from a quick trip to the store, to find a caterpillar with a horn. It was pretty big and my girls wanted to see what it would change into. They were eager to put it into their Butterfly treehouse.  Will update when our caterpillar wants to have the big reveal. :) What a wonderful study and it's fun to see the girls excited about learning new things. Which brings me to share the wonderful resources we are finding and using.

I found a wonderful site for bug identification
