Hungry Caterpillar

From caterpillar to butterfly we learned the four stages of the butterfly life cycle. 
1. egg   2.chrysalis  3. caterpillar   4. butterfly 

Here are the children creating each stage with puzzles, art work, and puppets.

Chemical Reactions! 

We explored what chemical reactions look like by adding vinegar to baking soda. We learned new vocabulary words like "fizz, carbon dioxide, erupt" 

* For a cool twist on the baking soda and vinegar activity, make vinegar ice cubes by adding vinegar and food coloring to an ice cube tray. Then, get a white sheet of paper and lay it on a tray with a thin layer of baking soda on top. When the ice cubes are frozen they can be taken out and used as a "marker/paintbrush" on top of the baking soda.
