Unforgettable opportunity to watch caterpillars turn into butterflies.

The children at Robin Hall nursery have been given some baby caterpillars. 

This will make a fascinating classroom project as it allows children to watch caterpillars develop into butterflies, before being released in the school grounds.

Learning about the life cycle of butterflies helps children understand how life evolves. 

Watching caterpillars turn into butterflies is a fulfilling experience which encourages them to seek out similar examples in nature.

The entire transformation from caterpillar to adult butterfly takes between 3 and 5 weeks.
