Caterpillars and Butterflies

Attributions: 
By Elisabeth in Miss Sheets' Class

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?
