Butterfly Experience

Part of our Life Science study is a hands-on experience with our local butterfly experts who live in Indialantic. They bring us cocoons to keep and release when they are ready. The students were abuzz with new ideas, highlighted by how to distinguish a boy butterfly from a girl butterfly! We have some butterfly plants in both of our gardens. Since the day we released butterflies last week, we have seen some flying about and wonder if they could be the ones. We had zebra wing butterflies along with monarchs. Always a beautiful, happy sight. Here are a few photos to give a sampler of the day.
Wonderful Work!
