Pre-K students witness the beauty of nature as they release Monarch butterflies. Three females and one male butterfly were set free. The class was thrilled! For weeks, in class, they learned about the stages of a butterfly and through observation, saw the transformation from a chrysalis to a butterfly. They learned that Monarchs are among the most easily recognizable of the butterfly species which call the Americas home. Monarch butterflies are bright orange with black and white markings. The body of the monarch is black. The head has a set of antennae. From the thorax come the wings which are mostly orange with black veins running throughout. The outer edge of the wings has a think black border. Within the black border are white spots. From now on, these Pre-K students will have a new appreciation for one of God’s creatures that blesses us with their presence each year. For more photos click here.
