Mrs. Anderson’s First Grade Class
This is the story of the Painted Lady Butterfly by Mrs. Anderson’s class.
Here are some things we learned.
Often the butterfly lays her eggs on the underneath side of the leaf.
The eggs look like pearls and are almost transparent.
Its first meal is the egg case and then it begins to eat leaves.
The caterpillar grows and grows.
The skin comes off, starting at the head.
The caterpillar stays in this stage for 12 to 18 days.
When the caterpillar is ready to make a chrysalis, it makes a silk button and hangs with its head down in the shape of a “J.” It stays in the pupa stage for 7 to 10 days.
Then the Butterfly comes out of the chrysalis!
The butterfly will use its proboscis to drink nectar from the flowers.
It flaps its wings to pump blood into them so they will be strong.

We learned the importance of practice, of doing our best, and of choosing the best image to tell the story of the Painted Lady. Images were taken by our teachers and from the book: ?????
