Caterpillar watch…We have got Painted Lady Butterfly larvae in our classroom! We have been closely watching our caterpillars grow and change. We got them on Friday 28th April and have been watching them munching away and getting bigger and bigger. We thought about how long they were using centimetres. Take a look at the pictures and you may notice:
The pot is covered with silk webs so that the caterpillars move around easier.
The black balls which are lots of different sizes is the skin they have shed (got rid of) as they have been growing.
The tiny greenish brown pellets are caterpillar poo called frass.
See what else you can spot…
