The Life Cycle Of A Butterfly
The Ducklings have taken a major interest in caterpillars, butterflies and insects from our storytime reading in the Ducklings Room.
We have been very busy learning about the life cycle of a butterfly and have even made our own egg, caterpillar, cocoon and butterfly out of different creative and natural resources to put in our new ‘life cycle of a butterfly corner’! For the cocoon, we went on a leaf, stick and twig hunt in the garden, we then used different resources including tissue paper and cotton wool to create our egg, caterpillar and butterfly.
The Ducklings have also enjoyed looking at the different cut-outs of the life cycle and can confidently name each cycle egg, caterpillar, cocoon, butterfly. We have enjoyed putting them in order and talking about the different stages.
We have also brought a new story into storytime called the ‘Cautious Caterpillar’. The Ducklings loved reading this story and enjoyed joining in with the story puppets to go with it!
