Not Monarchs...yet!

Mrs. Lynn's 4th grade class looks at Monarch butterfly egg specimens collected from the school grounds.  While reviewing the life cycle of butterflies, students are reminded that becoming a butterfly represents just one change in its life-cycle.  Monarch butterflies lay their eggs on milkweed which is toxic to its predators.  When the eggs hatch, the Monarch caterpillars feed on the milkweed.  Students are becoming aware that these stunning transformations, provided by nature, are happening in their own back yards!
