Butterflies in Elementary School

Post by muffinatormanic on Thu Jul 07, 2011 8:19 am

When you were in elementary school did your teacher let you take care of chicks, butterflies, catepillars, or ducks? :] Mine did and it was so fun! I wish I could go back!

No, but we had fish eggs that we hatched! When they were big enough, we released them into a river.

My daughter got to take care of a caterpillar that grew into a butterfly. We kept a log every day and drew pictures of the changes. Unfortunately, the butterfly fell off it's perch when the wings were still wet and they crumpled - never allowing the butterfly to fly.

I remember ages ago taking care of caterpillars that grew into a butterfly. It was fun, and really cool to see the stages of the cancun and things.

Unfortunately - it did die. We tried to help as much as we could, but it just couldn't survive without flight.

We had frogs. Watching them lay eggs, into tadpoles, growing and growing, and then letting them go. I was completely terrified of them.

Aww Karen! That's so sad D:

Aw, Test. D:

We never had pets that went from person to person like that.

Makes me think, there was this one boy in elementary school who used to eat worms for candy during our recess.
