May 6, 2016 – Many students learned about the life cycle of the Painted Lady Butterfly today. Our school received a Study Kit with 30 Painted Lady Butterfly larvae (caterpillars). With some student help and observation from most students, Mrs. Bateman transferred the caterpillars to their own individual containers with food for them to continue to grow. The caterpillar will find a safe place to rest, usually on the lid of the container. With a silk thread that comes out of a hole just below its mouth (spinneret), the caterpillar spins a silk pad to attach to. The caterpillar hangs from this pad. Soon, the caterpillars’ skin splits open, from head to abdomen, revealing a dull, brownish case underneath—the chrysalis or pupa. Once the cocoon’s are ready, we will transfer them to a flight cage where they will mature into painted lady butterflies. To be a part of our “Butterfly Diaries”, you can follow their progress via pictures on our school website and Facebook page and this is all on display in the library if you would like to stop by and have a look! If you stop by, please make sure you do not touch, poke or move the containers!
Our larvae doubled in size within a week!
This one over doubled his size. Right before it spun its’ silk and attached to the lid, it was over an inch long.
This was was ready for its chrysalis. It spun a piece of silk and hung from the lid to form a ‘J’.
Each larvae attached itself to the lid of their individual containers and formed into a chrysalis. We then removed the lids and put them into the flight house to hang for a week.
About 10 days after forming their chrysalis’s, our Painted Lady Butterflies emerged!
Our butterflies will finish their journey with us tomorrow morning at 10:00 am (June 3rd), as our Kindergarten will be releasing them into the courtyard at the Nursing home!
