Today is the 8th of Febuary and our new catapillars have nearly eaten one of the plants ENTIRELY. They are chubby enough to prove it as well. Go ahead and take a look for yourself.

I still wonder how it was possible for me to spot the little runaway outside the school fence...

With a little help from my friends I was able to encourage the runaway onto a leaf from our plants.

On 3rd of February while Mrs. Kenneally was taking us for e-learning she brought in 2 caterpillars that someday will turn into monarch butterflies. The whole of room seven was ecstatic! But when Mrs. Kenneally looked at the plant she only saw 1 caterpillar? She said it must have crawled off the plant when she put it outside the classroom. Soon it was lunchtime and we still hadn’t found the little critter but when Mrs. Kenneally went to get her lunch out of the car guess who she found crawling across the ground! It was the other caterpillar! She quickly got the plant and lured the caterpillar to crawl on the leaf because if you touch a caterpillar before it turns into a butterfly it will turn into a deformed butterfly.
