It's a Girl, and a Boy and another Boy! Triplet Tuesday!

Today our first graders got a chance to witness something very special! Three of our butterflies emerged. Our learners got to see first hand how the butterfly crawls from the chyrsalis, and pumps blood into their wings.  We watched as the butterfly closed its proboscis  and let their wings harden and dry. 

We learned that male butterflies have black spots on their wings. We then examined our butterflies and learned we had one female and two males. We finished our day releasing them into the wild.  We saw them heading south and wish them a safe migration.
