Fly Away, Fly Away, Fly Away Home!
The second graders here at Prospect Elementary School recently completed their study of the Painted Lady Butterfly's life cycle. The culminating activity for the study was the release of the butterflies that they had observed developing from the egg stage through to the adult butterfly stage.
Ryan Parker, pictured at the butterfly release, says that he learned a lot about the butterflies. "Butterflies are very fragile and come in many colors." he says. Ryan can't help but wonder where his butterfly will fly away to. "I want to learn more about butterflies!" he says excitedly.
