Caterpillar Experiment

A science experiment with out primary students to teach them about the life cycle of butterflies.

Since it’s the start of the year, we want our students to begin their learning journey with us in the most fun and interesting way.  As part of our Primary 4 Science module on ‘Animal Life Cycles’, our students happily participated in an activity where they gained first-hand experience in observing the life cycle of butterflies.  Each student was given 2 caterpillars, and they watched as their tiny caterpillars grow into beautiful butterflies!  (Disclaimer: No animals were harmed in the process of this activity.  The butterflies were released into the wild at the end of the activity.)
