Complete Life Cycle of a Butterfly

Here’s Teacher A’s lecture on Metamorphosis of a Butterfly. Thank you Mommy Jo for posting it and for Mommy Gracie for helping me locate it at our Facebook group.

Metamorphosis of a butterfly

(Life cycles)

Butterfly and moths undergo complete life cycles in which they go through four different life stages.

First stage Egg – butterfly starts its life as egg.

2nd Larva – (caterpillar) hatches from an egg.

It takes 10 – 15 days before a butterfly comes to live….[life]

Now, here’s a really cool video capturing the complete life cycle of a monarch butterfly. I showed this video to Dylan moments ago and he was really amazed, whilst I, however, cringed at the sight of those many tiny legs of the caterpillar and then later on, a butterfly. 🙂 But seriously, they are lovely creatures.

That is all for now. Too bad about the unannounced English test today, huh? I was suddenly reminded of the surprise quizzes that my teachers / professors used to give us back in our high school and college days. It wasn’t funny then, nor is it now.

Goodnight Moms, Dads and the little ones! Enjoy the rest of the week!
