This is a butterfly. You see butterflies outside in the summer, but where did the butterfly come from?


Butterflies hatch from eggs, but they don’t come out as butterflies…


They come out as caterpillars!


Caterpillars eat and eat. They eat the leaves of plants. The caterpillar might stay on the same plant for its whole life.


The caterpillar will grow very quickly. It will only stay a caterpillar for a few weeks.


When the caterpillar is done eating, it makes a chrysalis. A chrysalis is a hard shell that the caterpillar will live in for several weeks.


While the caterpillar is in the chrysalis, it doesn’t eat at all. The caterpillar undergoes a metamorphosis. Do you know what that big word means?


“Metamorphosis” means “change.” The caterpillar is changing. It is changing into a…


Butterfly!


Now the butterfly can move to new plants. The butterfly has a tongue shaped like a straw. It uses its tongue to sip flower nectar.


The butterflies can lay new eggs on a leaf. Caterpillars will hatch out of those eggs, and our butterfly story will start again.
