Caterpillars and Butterflies

Mrs. Tew brought in 3 caterpillars and milkweed into Miss Sheets’ class the first week of school.  The caterpillars ate, and ate.  Soon, they climbed to the top of the cage and hung on by silk and started to make their cocoons.  It took ten days for them to become butterflies.  Two of the butterflies were girls and one was a boy.  One of the girl butterflies was a Queen butterfly and the rest were Monarchs.  The queen butterfly has a darker color than the monarch butterflies and more white spots.  Did you know that?

Sixth grade students at Meadow Brook Elementary worked hard to build hot air balloons. They were only given 24 pieces of tissue paper, a glue stick, scissors, ruler, pencil, and a notebook to make the balloons with. They were also told that some ideas may not work, but that is how you learn the most.

 First, the students formed groups. Our group came up with Sailing Sea theme for our hot air balloon. It was shaped like an upside down water bottle. Each group had to  pass off their team’s design to their teacher.
