What a beautiful butterfly! I wonder where butterflies come from?
Let's investigate the yard and see where it goes, maybe there is a clue!
A tiny little caterpillar! I think we figured it out! I remember a story about this, do you want to hear it? Great!
It all starts when a butterfly lays its eggs, this butterfly is a Monarch and it uses milkweed plants to lay its eggs.
When the eggs hatch, the new caterpillar, or larva, emerge and begin crunching away on the milkweed and store away the food for later. They will need a lot of energy!
When the caterpillar is ready and has stored enough food, it finds a safe place and makes a protective cover called a pupa. This is when the magic happens!
Inside the pupa this little caterpillar is using all that food it ate as fuel to transform itself. Finally, it is ready to emerge!
Goodbye butterfly! I cannot wait to meet your family!
