Our pet butterfly, Foldy

A couple of weeks ago, we received 10 caterpillars for our classroom. In a little over a week, they had each made their chrysalis, only this year the butterflies emerged much more quickly than they did last year.

However, one of the ten did not have a complete set of wings, and cannot be released outside. So it seems that we have a new classroom pet! Ladies and gentlemen, please meet Foldy!
