Insects & Ecosystems
Our young scientists have had a busy week! First, we observed the final stage of both the butterfly and ladybug lifecycles. Our butterfly emerged last Friday while the ladybugs arrived today. The children were so excited to watch them grow and change these past couple of weeks. We will work together to feed and care for the ladybugs before we release them outside next week.
Then, we went on a hunt for ecosystems around Skillin. We walked around the school looking for places that animals and plants live together, depending on one another for survival. We found woods, an underground/dirt area, grass and a garden! The children noticed many insects in the garden (and even a frog!)
