Celebrating Earth Day: Earth's Birthday Project

Earth's Birthday Project

Our Preschool participates in Earth's Birthday Project every year and it is something I really look forward to!  It is a great science project and a beautiful way to celebrate Earth Day! 

We purchase Painted Lady caterpillars and observe their life cycle from small caterpillars (larva) to chrysalises (pupa) to butterflies (imago) and then release them in the school garden.

My favorite part is getting to hold the butterflies upon release. This was last years photo:
