The infant room was lucky to receive a caterpillar last month from a teacher here at Rideau Heights. We created a home for our caterpillar, using a plastic cup and a net. We then put water inside and added some milk weed for our caterpillar to eat. We watched our caterpillar each day as he ate, growing bigger and bigger! The infants were very curious about our new friend so we decided to create a "caterpillar interest board" in our room to help show them what was happening. As time passed our friend finally made his chrysalis and we continued to observe our friend as he changed before our eyes. Soon our friend will be ready to become a butterfly and we will have to say goodbye as we set him free on his new journey outdoors.
