In the morning we had a recap of how a terrarium works. In small groups the children will make one this week.

The have put all the layers in themselves and wrote their name and the name of the seeds on the bottle.

 

Just before lunch we have transported the cocooned caterpillars to their new habitat. It was very exciting, four of the five caterpillars are in their cocoon already. They have been hanging upside down on the lid of the jar. We opened the jar and with a paperclip they are still hanging on the paper in their new home. We will check on them everyday hoping they will become butterflies soon.
