Our swan plants!

Last week we got back in to our garden plot. First we had to weed out the old plants that were dead. Miss Williams had brought in some swan plants from her house and we each took turns at planting one or two plants. Some are big, some are small. One plant even has a seed pod on it with fluffy seeds inside. Kelly helped us to plant some of the seeds and we will see if we can grow some plants from scratch.

Today we looked at the cycle of a Monarch butterfly. We listened to a cool song about the butterfly and the stages it goes through, and then we started colouring in a picture of the different stages. Our new word we have learnt is chrysalis - which is where the caterpillar changes into a butterfly.

Keep an eye on our blog for more updates ! Hopefully we will have some caterpillars on our plants soon!
